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

Reviews

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 real page turner.

 on 3 January 2018
By Mr René
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.

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”.

Brief and indispensable

An indispensable reference, and mercifully brief. Incredible that the author had published this by the end of 2016. If only the government showed the same alacrity!

We’re probably doomed…

I was lucky enough to meet the author at an event in Oxford, and this is an extremely insightful and informative read.

I am from the EU and ever since the referendum I have felt not wanted and extremely unsure of everything and it’s very unsettling. I have worked and provided taxes to the UK for the last 15 years yet I can be made to feel irrelevant in a minute and have already. There is a lot of hate out there; Theresa May is not clear at all and it appears her party only have their interests at heart not this wonderful country. This book has made a lot of uncertainty a lot clearer. The book is short; to the point and clear. I recommend everyone should actually read this book. There is a lot of heresay and we don’t know what to believe but this book does put a lot into perspective. Should have been published before the vote in my opinion but we can’t go back only forward.

I really enjoyed reading the book on my commute

This is quite an informative book that takes you through the issues without getting too overly complex. It’s clearly quite pro ‘remain’ and is meant for the casual reader. I really enjoyed reading the book on my commute, it’s really suitable for anyone who wants to fully understand what leaving the EU will entail for the UK economically, politically and socially with the author giving his opinion on probably outcomes.
