I realised how confusing the whole Brexit debate must have been when well-educated & travelled, apparently politically aware and sophisticated 30-something year olds were categoric as to how they intended to vote, yet an hour later they voted the other way. Sebastian's 'Brexit - How the Nobodies Beat the Somebodies' was recommended to me, and I am so pleased they did. A fascinating insight to what really happened. Well done Sebastian.
Not having cast a vote in the UK for over 40 years, I was intrigued by how angrily polarised the community became over Brexit, especially when the case for leaving seemed so obvious to me as a long-term 'leaver'. Then along comes Sebastian Handley's book, which lays the bones bare on how he and other similarly frustrated English men and women took on the smug, self-entitled class and tossed them out! Awesome. A quintessentially British revolution, apparently this is how it happened. And to think that without the murder of Jo Cox on June 16th it could well have been a 5%-6% margin, rather than the 1.5% it ended up being. A wonderful read, which I could not commend more highly. Sebastian for PM?
