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, 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

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”.

Take a reality check

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”

Good book but

The book is realistic and scary. I could only find one obvious point which Could be regarded as deliberately misleading, that 21% of leave voters believe immigration is a force for good but neglecting to point out the same survey showed 20% of remain voters believe immigration a force for ill. Informative, mostly not biased and readable

Everything you need to think about over Brexit!

To say this book is thought provoking is an understatement. The work required to untangle the UK from the EU is mind boggling.

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.

I’m glad i continued

The start feels over dramatic. I almost put the book to one side. I’m glad i continued, as it goes on it is a lot more balanced and clear about the implications and mechanics of leaving the EU. Purely a presentation issue, but I’d lose the first section outlining the worst case scenario.

Depressing but clear overview of the incredibly hard work ahead …

Depressing but clear overview of the incredibly hard work ahead to achieve from Brexit even the same situation we have now.
