Dia Chakravarty

The Telegraph's Brexit editor joins the panel in a week where a new report revealed the shocking damage leaving the EU has inflicted on Scotland.

The new paper detailed consequences like an expected loss of £3 billion every year in public revenues, food price inflation at a 45-year high with Brexit responsible for an estimated one third of it and damaged trade - with 44% of businesses naming Brexit as the main cause of difficulties trading overseas.

Chakravarty is also the former political director of the Taxpayers' Alliance.

The organsiation presents itself as a non-partisan mass membership organisation despite its links to Vote Leave and the Conservative Party hierarchy.
