The referendum campaigns for and against Brexit were mostly based on fear and falsehoods rather than facts. Though it is clear that Brexit has increased polarization within British society, other consequences of the decision remain opaque. Will living costs rise? Will there be more money for the health system, education and investment in the UK market? Will the country lose qualified, much-needed workers? This short, insightful book by journalist and broadcaster Gavin Esler offers a disconcerting examination of the real effects Brexit will have on Britain’s economy, culture and society.
