Cardiff academics call for referendum on Brexit deal

Academics at Cardiff University have called on their vice-chancellor to advocate a referendum on the final Brexit deal.

In an open letter to the university’s vice-chancellor Colin Riordan, staff criticise the institution for having kept “a remarkably low profile” since the Brexit referendum, when it comes to warning against the consequences that Brexit poses for the university.

“We believe Cardiff University should take a more prominent, vocal, and proactively pro-European stance, both internally and externally,” the letter says. “Rather than accepting Brexit as an inevitability that will lead to strategic and financial pressures, Cardiff University should lead the way in Wales in fighting for people having an informed vote on the final deal.”
