From dominating the front pages to being mentioned at Cannes, it seems that Brexit is on everyone’s lips. Ken Loach has spoken at Cannes about the forthcoming Brexit vote, referring to the vote as a “dangerous, dangerous moment”.
The acclaimed director was at the festival to promote his new film I, Daniel Blake and commented on the Brexit in a press conference:
“On the one hand, the European Union is a neo-liberal project, it’s a drive towards privatisation and a drive towards de-regulation. The safeguards that are there for workers and for the environment are constantly under attack so it’s not doing us any favours at the moment. On the other hand, if we leave, we know the individual governments will be moving as far to the right as possible”.
