KEEP CALM AND BREXIT ON? – Part 1: Down the Brexit Hole

Keep Calm and Brexit On casts a lens on the ongoing mess of UK politics for outsiders who want to gain an understanding of what’s going on (and what’s at stake), and the detail necessary for those who are living through it to dig deeper.

Europe is at the brink of oblivion and the UK is trying to coax it over the edge. Theresa May’s Tories are leading the charge, while Jeremy Corbyn is dragging Labour along for the ride. While the story may seem like a suspense thriller with cliffhangers at every turn, the problems won’t go away when the book is closed. Down the Brexit Hole is an attempt to highlight the dangers of our current political environment and a call for all to do something about it. 
Keep Calm and Brexit On will be available on March 9, 2017.
