Gisela Stuart, Labour Member of Parliament and a former framer of the EU Constitution, headed the Leave campaign and says the status quo would not have remained possible in any case. Baroness Burt of the Lib Dems says leaving is a disaster but British business will find opportunities.  

Labour MP Jo Cox supported the Remain side but was murdered on the eve of the Referendum. Baroness Kramer and Guardian political editor Anushka Asthana speak in memory of Cox. Kramer also experienced death threats.
