If you’re left reflecting on quite how Britain ended up where it is today: the oddball of Europe with a nation split as to how to move forward, then this episode’s guest helps provide some clarity. Paul Goldsmith is the co-author of How To Lose A Referendum: The Definitive Story of Why The UK Voted for Brexit, which he penned with Sky News senior political correspondent Jason Farrell. In the interview with Tim, the political blogger and economics and politics teacher from west London digs into the history of the European Union and looks at the decisions successive UK governments took to weaken our bargaining position within the bloc. Paul discusses how the true political vision of the EU was never truly sold to a disaffected British public and, how, when it came to June 23 last year the resulting Leave vote should not have been a surprise at all.
