An easy to read guide to how Brexit will change Britain
'Highly recommended' – Nick Cohen, Observer/Spectator

Britain's departure from the European Union is filled with propaganda and myth but the risks are very real. Brexit could lower our global status, diminish our quality of life, and throw our legal system into turmoil.

With the help of constitutional and trade experts, Ian Dunt, editor of Politics.co.uk, explains why exiting the EU is likely to:

make the UK poorer
leave industries like pharmaceuticals and finance struggling to operate
threatens to break up the United Kingdom
The book deals with the trade and legal cliff edge that Britain will face unless it can secure a transitional deal with the European Union, why the odds are stacked against the UK government in its negotiations with Brussels, and how the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is not the cure to leaving the EU that the Brexiters believe.

This is the first full public exploration of Brexit, stripped of the wishful thinking of its supporters in the media and Parliament. It is the real picture of a country about to undergo a sharp and self-inflicted isolation. This book is for people who still believe in evidence and in experts.

It is the perfect accompaniment to All Out War by Tim Shipman which looks back at the referendum campaign. Brexit: What the Hell Happens Now? looks forward to a volatile future.

'Excellent. A must-read. Harass every MP until they read Dunt's book' – AC Grayling


I would strongly recommend Ian Dunt's excellent guide to what happens next.

Dunt has taken the extraordinary step of asking a set of experts what they think about matters of law.

This is one of the few books of the set to face forwards rather than backwards and it is all the better for that. I learnt a lot, which I find often happens when I have the humility to listen to experts.

Philip Collins, Prospect Magazine

Admirably brief and necessarily brutal.

Whatever your position during the referendum, you ought to read Dunt because he is willing to face uncomfortable facts. The only country in the world with absolute sovereignty is North Korea. Everyone else must make compromises. The only question for us is how bad a compromise we must endure.

…As for all the favours the right expects the US and Australia to give us, Dunt imagines, perfectly plausibly, the reality will be US trade officials telling our hastily assembled team of novice trade negotiators:

The UK is in a position of unique and historic vulnerability. Its economy is facing the most significant shock since the Second World War. It has no time. It has no negotiating capacity. But Washington wants to help. It is prepared to rush a trade deal through Congress. It could take less than two years. But for this to be achievable, the UK needs to accept all of its demands. The Americans slide a piece of paper across the desk. The British team read the demands: they are horrendous. But they have little option but to capitulate. The only way to protect what remains of the British economy is to sell off British sovereignty.

Nick Cohen, The Spectator

A brief but informative summary of the issues facing BREXIT

On the cover of Ian Dunt’s book is a promotional stamp proclaiming “For people who still believe in experts”, referencing Michael Gove’s quip during the referendum campaign that “people in this country have had enough of experts”.

A real page turner.

As of end of Dec 2017 I was finding this book still very relevant. I think perhaps he was unaware that the Tories were talking about a transition period – so a few discussion points could be more up-to-date. Nonetheless, I found this book to be extremely easy to read and generally quite timeless, I don’t think it will become obsolete very easily. He focusses on the hot topics, and at times cites people like BoJo, David Davis, May etc… but generally he has focussed on economic and legal theory – so this book should remain relevant for a good few years I would suggest.

Good luck everyone

Pity this wasn’t available before June 16. A clear and even handed appraisal of the precipitous situation facing the UK. Facts and figures which never get a mention are there for consideration. A valuable- and terrifying- piece of work.

A clear easy to read guide on just some of the major problems we face with Brexit. A must read.

An easy to read book on just some of the challenges of escaping Europe (I don’t want to!) – clear, precise and informative and therefore very worrying. I read it in a day and it’s an eye opener

Hard to beat

The perils and (few and far between) pluses of Brexit explained concisely and accessibly. I read it a year ago and it’s quite depressing to see scenarios predicted in this book coming to pass just as the author warned they might. It’s also an example of how badly our country is now ruled that the complexities outlined here are only just starting to dawn on the people we elected to govern us. They could have saved themselves a lot of time if they’d dropped the pig headed nationalism and educated themselves about the pifalls they were letting us in for. Oh well.

A balanced, sharply analytical look at how Brexit is happening and what is likely to hapoen after.

Fanatical Leavers will dismiss this book as another chapter in Project Fear. It is not. The author does not condemn Brexit as a concept, but analyses the way it is being carried out, and considers the implications of the possible Brexit outcomes. It is impeccably researched, with some if the most authoritative sources in the world contributing, and the conclusions it draws are based on rational argument, incontrovertible facts and clear critical analysis. It is, quite frankly, terrifying, and should be absolutely compulsory reading for every single MP, and also for any civil servant even distantly or potentially involved in Brexit.

Great for getting up to speed on what’s needed for Brexit and what’s coming

If you want to seem knowledgeable about brexit, have a read. Warning though, this will clearly point out how those talking about it publicly, with power, have little to do idea about anything and are playing politics while the country is likely to go to pot. So beware of the depression.

One of the books that should have read before voting in the Referendum.

A good account of where the UK is going … possibly … let’s hope not, they have not thought this through.

A well researched book detailing all aspects of the process of the U.K. leaving the EU. Brexit is complex from a legal and financial perspective but this book explains the issues in fairly simple terms. Compelling reading.
