What is Brexit?
The term ‘Brexit’ refers to the United Kingdom withdrawing from the European Union. A national referendum in the UK was held on 23rd June 2016 in which 51.9% of those voting supported leaving the EU. The ‘remain’ vote to stay in the European Union was 48.1%. The overall referendum turnout was 71.8%, with more than 30 million people voting.

The only book to tell the full story of how and why Britain voted to leave the EU. This is the acclaimed inside story of the EU referendum in 2016 that takes you behind the scenes of the most extraordinary episode in British politics since the Second World War.
With unparalleled access to all key players, this is a story of calculation, attempted coups and people torn between principles and loyalty. It is a book about our leaders and their closest aides, the decisions they make, how and why they make them and how they feel when they turn out to be so wrong.
Over 100 prime cuts from the cult Twitter phenomenon, McFadden’s Cold War: the first book from the subversive genius satirizing the absurdity of our time.
Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Vladimir Putin, Steve McFadden and Nigel Farage went on a fishing trip? Or, if Shane Richie performed karaoke on the bed of a 1980s hotel room as the pope pops to the loo and Trump looks on contemplatively whilst soaking up the music? Well you don’t have to, as the parodying master that is Cold War Steve has done it for you.
After all the debates, manoeuvrings, recriminations and exaltations, Brexit is upon us. But, as Kevin O’Rourke writes, Brexit did not emerge out of nowhere: it is the culmination of events that have been under way for decades and have historical roots stretching back well beyond that. Brexit has a history.
O’Rourke, one of the leading economic historians of his generation, explains not only how British attitudes to Europe have evolved, but also how the EU’s history explains why it operates as it does today – and how that history has shaped the ways in which it has responded to Brexit.
Not for many years has there been such a divisive issue as Brexit, and like all divisive issues it has provided a bonanza for cartoonists. This generous selection of pocket cartoons captures the sheer bewilderment and exasperation which have bedevilled us all since the referendum.
Some of the cartoons favour one side or the other, but most celebrate (or at least commemorate) a period of unique bafflement. With the emphasis much more on ordinary people than on the politicians, The Penguin Book of Brexit Cartoons will bring together at Christmas-time even the most riven families.
In exploring the answers to the question: ‘why did Britain vote leave?’, Fintan O’Toole finds himself discovering how trivial journalistic lies became far from trivial national obsessions; how the pose of indifference to truth and historical fact has come to define the style of an entire political elite; how a country that once had colonies is redefining itself as an oppressed nation requiring liberation; the strange gastronomic and political significance of prawn-flavoured crisps, and their role in the rise of Boris Johnson.
The dreams of revolutionary deregulation and privatisation that drive Arron Banks, Nigel Farrage and Jacob Rees-Mogg; and the silent rise of English nationalism, the force that dare not speak its name.
This is the book for the 16 Million of us that woke up the day after the night before the EU referendum to find our Euro dreams in tatters. This is a book about leaving when you really wanted to stay. This is a book about having to deal with the consequences of someone else’s decision. This is a book that will lead you mindfully (and not without some good hearted political mockery) down the path of acceptance into the cold hard Brexit dawn.
Through a series of therapeutic exercises we will overcome our depression and grief around the EU referendum result and walk tall post Brexit.
Lying on a riverbank on a lazy summer’s afternoon – 23rd June 2016, to be precise – Alice spots a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum. Following him down a rabbit-hole, she emerges into a strange new land, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts…
She meets such characters as the Corbynpillar, who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone; Humpty Trumpty, perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for; the Cheshire Twat, who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining; and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness, who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit. Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense?
The only book you need on Britain’s biggest political issue. Find out how Brexit will affect Britain – and what will happen if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal.

This is the unmissable inside story of the most dramatic general election campaign in modern history and Theresa May’s battle for a Brexit deal – the greatest challenge for a prime minister since the Second World War.
Fall Out tells of how a leader famed for her caution battled her bitterly divided cabinet at home while facing duplicitous Brussels bureaucrats abroad. Of how she then took the biggest gamble of her career to strengthen her position – and promptly blew it. It is also a tale of treachery where – in the hour of her greatest weakness – one by one, May’s colleagues began to plot against her.
