Dry read but analysis backed up by statistics

This is something of a dry read, crammed with statistical analysis (unfortunately most of it unreadable on the Kindle version I had).: “Since the dependant variable is a dichotomy…model parameters are estimated using binomial logit procedures…” gives a flavour of the tone! Nonetheless, it is a fascinating read and does make you wonder why the pundits & pollsters got the referendum result so wrong. The authors indicate, based on a slew of long-term survey evidence, that many of the factors that affected voting were baked in long before the referendum took place. and that whilst some people did change their minds during the referendum campaign, most attitudes had formed years before. “It is clear that, if they were listening, a large majority of British MPs would have heard their constituents supporting Brexit” – London and Scotland being the exceptions. The survey evidence also suggest the Remain campaign got its strategy wrong – the scare-mongering of ‘Project Fear’ just didn’t go down well. The Leave campaign seems to have been more nimble in responding to voters’ concerns.

great reading; very academic but worth while explanations for the Brexit result.

What’s not to like?

 on 2 July 2017
By John Plowright
The 23 June 2016 referendum decision for Britain to leave the European Union was a pivotal moment and one that confounded the overwhelming majority of media commentators, pollsters and academics who concluded that Remain would win, given the weight of advice to that effect from national and international figures and organizations (including the Prime Minister, most of his Cabinet, a large majority of MPs, the CBI, the World Bank and the IMF), in addition to the dire warnings of the consequences of leaving, emanating from the likes of George Osborne (talk of a “DIY recession” and a “punishment budget”) and Barack Obama (saying that a Britain outside the EU would have to go to the “back of the queue” in any trade negotiations with the US).

I devoured it one sitting.

Food for thought, certainly. I devoured it in one sitting, and once fully digested I think I’ll come back for seconds. With some tasty nuggets of information, and plenty to chew over, I’d recommend this to anyone with a hunger for political tomes.

Probably the best study so far of why we voted to leave the EU

This is a brilliant study, which should be read by everybody who has an opinion on the EU referendum. Harold D. Clarke is Ashbel Smith Professor at the University of Texas, Dallas. Matthew Goodwin is Professor of Political Science at the University of Kent. Paul Whiteley is a Professor of Government at the University of Essex.

Well written and detailed book of why we we voted ‘out’

 on 27 July 2017
By Dr. P. J. Neal
Extremely well written and detailed of why most us voted out. Did not cover much of what the EU is or has done wrong, or how it has changed considerably from the organisation we initially joined. We joined the Economic Community, it is now the Political Community.
