NEW BOOK: The Parliamentary Battle over Brexit
23 March 2023
The Parliamentary Battle over Brexit by Meg Russell and Lisa James is released today.
Today marks the release of ‘The Parliamentary Battle over Brexit’, an authoritative account by Unit Director Meg Russell and Research Fellow Lisa James, charting the full story of how Brexit was played out in parliament. Drawing on insider accounts, alongside media and parliamentary debates, the book puts the events of Brexit into context and provides a clear and reliable document of record on a complex and disputed story. Ultimately, it argues that Brexit was largely a battle inside the Conservative Party, for which parliament got the blame.
