BBCThe American demanded another referendum on the European Union
An audience member asked whether Emmanuel Macron’s promise to loan the Bayeux Tapestry to the UK in return for £44.5million in border controls was a good deal or a “stitch-up”.
The American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who won an academy award for his film "Milk" about the first openly gay man elected to public office in the US, said the UK should “expect to pay this and more” for leaving the EU before demanding a second referendum.
Mr Lance Black said: “I think it is wonderful that we are going to share art, I am an artist. But I also think that folks in this country need to get used to paying these sorts of amounts and more.
“I never had an opportunity to vote on Brexit but clearly there are going to be these unilateral relationships between countries that you didn’t use to have to do that with.Related articles
“We’re going to have see this country reach out and create these relationships and friendships with other countries and the price tag is likely to be very high.
“I am very curious to see what this deal is going to look like with Brexit, I hope as someone who is going to call this home that it’s a very good deal but I’m going to be equally shocked if it is, the way things are going.
“I’m going to get controversial for just a second, but I hope when this deal is done and the deal is a stinker then they let the people have a voice.”
