Synopsis

“Remember the words of Ivan Rogers the next time you hear some posh boy in a suit telling you ‘no deal’ wouldn’t hurt at all and might even be a jolly good thing.” J.K. Rowling

“Cuts through the guff spoken by government, ERG, Labour and pretty much everyone else.” Robert Peston

Two and a half years after Britain voted to leave the European Union, the political debate over Brexit seems as intense and as complicated as ever. Who and what can we trust? And how on earth do we make sense of it all?

Ivan Rogers, the UK’s former ambassador to the EU, is uniquely placed to tell some home truths about the failure of the British political class and the flaws, dishonesty and confusion inherent in the UK’s approach to Brexit so far.

In this short, elegant essay, Rogers draws up nine lessons that we, as a soon-to-be ‘third country’, need to learn from the last few years, if the next few years – indeed the next decade – are not to be even more painful.

About the Publisher

Short Books

Short Books

Founded in 2001 by former journalists Rebecca Nicolson and Aurea Carpenter, Short Books has established itself as a publisher of first-class, entertaining fiction and non-fiction. Notable successes have included bestselling Amo, amas, amat… And all that by Harry Mount, The Social Animal by David Brooks, The J.M Barrie Ladies’ Swimming Society by Barbara J. Zitwer and The Fast Diet by Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer. We are a small company, and pride ourselves on being light on our feet – thereby making a success of potentially high-risk or less obvious titles that the larger houses would turn down without a second look. Take, for example, the ground-breaking eco-/social regeneration book, Change the World for a Fiver, which has now sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world.
