In their book; How To Lose A Referendum; which they will talk about at this event; Sky News senior political correspondent Jason Farrell and political blogger and economics and politics teacher Paul Goldsmith identify eighteen key reasons why the UK made its choice; from Britain’s absence at the birth of the European project to the inflammatory rhetoric of one Nigel Farage; and everything in between. The book is the product of extensive and refreshingly frank interviews with the key players from both campaigns coupled with a wide-ranging exploration of the historical context around Britain’s departure. Why was a project designed for common peace and prosperity ultimately so hard to defend?
