Journalistic but a timely overview

 on 15 November 2017
By Alistair
This is a timely and relevant book. It lays bare the conflicts and infighting inside the leave campaigns who at times seemed to be more interested in doing each other down than fighting the remainers. There are clashes of egos, unpleasant characters and honourable men and women all mixed in together combined with a gripping narrarative which builds up to an unlikely victory. The style is journalistic which is not surprising and it’s not a work of any great analysis and the lack of an index and footnotes are drawbacks as are the many unattributed quotes. It is however a riveting read, flows well off the page and while I’m sure there will be more scholarly and substantial works in the future on this subject this book does work as an enjoyable introduction while the brexit process is still current and raw.

Interesting account of one of the most important periods of modern British history. Intrigue and subterfuge behind the campaign on both sides was fascinating to read . Unfortunately confirms my opinion that politicians in the main cannot be trusted .At times I wondered if I was reading the script for an episode of ‘The Thick of it ‘

Accessible, funny, intelligent

This is a great book for politics enthusiasts, not full of analysis and conclusions but a fascinating, well told and very informative account of the journey to Out, packed with detail and drama as different Brexit campaigners fought not only the government and Remain, but each other, pushing their view of the ‘right’ campaign to deliver victory for Leave. As described here the choice was initially, broadly speaking, between ‘sovereignty’ and ‘immigration’.

Egos and Rivalries Ruled the Campaign. Political Opportunists Were Common.

By Dr Barry Clayton
The author is a political reporter. He has written a book on Farage. This book is the third of its kind to be published recently. Three more are due out by March 2017. Like it’s predecessor, this is a well-written and interesting read. Also like it’s predecessor, it is far from being a definitive work. This will not be available for at least four to five years. A deep, objective analysis awaits, for example, the memoirs of Cameron, Osborne and Gove. It will be much, much later before key cabinet papers are available, if ever.

Fast-paced, accessible and informative take on Brexit

Fast-paced and informative run through of the campaign that led to Brexit. Like the author’s previous book, Following Farage, it offers a real insight into some of the personalities involved and the level of access to key individuals is clear throughout. I’d recommend it if you’re interested in politics, or specifically the EU referendum campaign, and I (and subsequently my partner) found it a really accessible and enjoyable take on what was going on behind the scenes and how we ended up with Brexit.

An excellent overall account of the interweaving different Leave organisations

An excellent overall account of the interweaving different Leave organisations. It becomes apparent why there was not one Leave campaign as the differences were too large to bridge. It is also appears that Leave.EU was far more interesting and well organised than the MP fronted Vote Leave. The book complements the Bad Boys of Brexit by Arron Banks superbly, as it gives some very good background and a wider understanding to the events in Bad Boys. Read it first.

Really strong writing and insightful. I wasn’t surprised to see arron banks tweeting a pic of him reading it with Farage. Whatever side you were on, this one is worth having to make your own mind up about the leave side of the urinal
