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 brief but informative summary of the issues facing BREXIT

2 people found this helpful.

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”.

Recommended reading for all Brexiteers

I wish people would have thought before the referendum and not bought into the myths, but as it happens, they rather believed propaganda, words on a bus, bumbling Boris, ranting Nige with a pint in his hand, and all the people who wanted to keep the tax loopholes open and were happy to fan the flames of xenophobia and let everybody suffer…

A partisan perspective, but a well-researched one

This is a partisan but highly readable overview of what promises to be the biggest challenge that the British state has faced since World War 2 – unpicking 40+ years of increasing legal and economic integration between the UK and its European neighbours, while simultaneously trying to avoid economic disruption, satisfy public demands for reduced immigration and maintain the fragile union between Leave-voting England & Wales and Remain-voting Scotland & Northern Ireland. And all this, seemingly, with just two years of negotiations to deal with a vast array of formidable issues from the ‘divorce bill’ to customs arrangements, financial regulations and agricultural exports. Ian Dunt’s book is purportedly based on conversations with a wide range of different subject experts (listed in the back), but don’t expect traditional academic referencing – this is very much a concise introduction for the layman – and don’t expect Dunt to give much of a hearing to the Leave lobby.

Probably the best insight into Brexit so far

This book probably gives the best, most educated insight into Brexit I have seen so far from any written book. I recently read this book despite having bought it a while ago, apparently having only recently found time to do so, and I find it explains the intense complexity that Brexit has much better than any other source I’ve seen so far.

It’s clear where the authors opinions are on the matter but he explains each potential option in more detail than was ever offer

For anyone who wants to know more about the possible outcomes of the upcoming negotiations. It’s clear where the authors opinions are on the matter but he explains each potential option in more detail than was ever offered before the referendum and shows why the idea that we can just leave and it’ll all be fine is pure fantasy based on his understanding of both EU and UK trade law and respective negotiating positions.

Take a reality check

 on 17 February 2017
By Amazon Customer
A clearly written, simple but not simplistic, explanation of what is likely to happen when Britain quits the EU, by someone who has researched the reality of things as they are, not the promises of what they may be if absolutely everything works out as the Brexiteers promise. Unfortunately it’s rapidly becoming out-dated as events unfold, but still worth reading (try not to get too depressed!) and passing on to those who think that it’ll be all right really as Britain “goes global”

Excellent book

This is the book that people should have had before the referendum but it’s still very helpful to help sift through the tabloid nonsense.
