Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord George Carey applies Jamie Oliver’s famous dictum to a post-Brexit Britain, exploring in a light-hearted way how we may overcome Brexit fears.

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity”. W B Yeats’s words come to mind when we contemplate our present Brexit situation. Carey considers five great institutions of our civilisation – Parliament, the judiciary, the police, the church and the media – and asks: Whom can we trust?

Carey notably came out for Brexit before the June 2016 vote, arguing that relationships within the EU were causing the division, conflict and unhappiness they were created to cure.

Carey was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002. He holds a doctorate from King’s College London and, before becoming Archbishop, taught at three Anglican theological colleges.
