Brexit campaigners are fighting for an England that doesn't exist, says Rem Koolhaas

OMA founder Rem Koolhaas says that Britain's EU Leave campaigners believe they can change England back to the way it was, but don't understand what that really means.

Speaking to the BBC, the Dutch architect – who studied and taught in the UK in the 1960s and 70s – said that European Union membership had transformed Britain for the better.

He warned that Leave campaigners were fighting for a nostalgic idea of an England that didn't exist.

Creative businesses in the UK should consider relocating to the EU in the wake of Brexit, according to a lawyer who advises design and fashion companies. Moving would allow these businesses to get round trade barriers that could be erected if the UK fails to negotiate access to the single market, said Annabelle Gauberti, partner at law firm Crefovi (pictured).

"Creative companies headquartered in the UK, which export goods and products, such as fashion and design companies, should monitor the UK negotiations of the withdrawal agreement with the EU extremely closely," Gauberti wrote in a blog post on Saturday.
