Interview with the man behind the word Brexit


Ever wondered where the word Brexit came from?

The man who coined the term, Peter Wilding, visited the University of Wolverhampton to give a guest lecture on Monday, 11 March 2019.

Peter, who is Brexit Director at FBC Manby Bowdler, spoke about the changing political and economic landscape and the challenges facing the West Midlands.

He said: "Brexit is a dirty word right now, it is a by-word for incompetence and drift."

Peter spoke to business and politics students from the University's Faculty of Social Sciences and took part in a Q&A session. 

The visit was organised as part of the University's continuing relationship with FBC Manby Bowdler solicitors.
