I'm reading All Out War by Tim Shipman now.

Interesting book. Although I'm struggling to keep track of all the characters involved in it. It's a book about how Brexit came about - a history of Brexit. A lot of it is like an episode of Yes Minister / Yes Prime Minister. For example when they changed the original referendum question and answer from one where the possible answers were a "Yes" and a "No" to one where the answers were "Remain" or "Leave" that made a 4% different in the opinion polls. Meaning that if the original (slightly leading) question and answer had been used the referendum result may well have gone the other way.

I wish we had politicians that were more like that.
