Breaking Point: The UK Referendum on the EU and its Aftermath
X
Into a year teeming with global volatility, David Cameron tipped another giant unknown, rolling the dice on Britain s most important economic relationship: its 43-year-old membership of the EU. In European capitals this was seen as an existential threat to the entire European project, while Eurosceptics across the UK saw it as the perfect moment to pull up the drawbridge. The political establishment fired back with a barrage of government data, third country endorsements and world bodies opinions, unsure whether these long-trusted political weapons weren t firing blanks. Breaking Point explains where post-referendum Britain is heading, how we got here, and what lessons might be learned. It combines analysis of official and off-the-record meetings with senior politicians as well as with ordinary voters. Just how will the UK truly leave a set of relationships on the country s doorstep? Will the decision to leave prove a lethal blow to the EU, spurring copycat secession movements?
