Nick Clegg

Bod­ley Head, 160 pages, €10

The for­mer leader of the Lib­eral Democrats has, like many non-Tory politi­cians, been ve­he­mently op­posed to Brexit, and in this polem­i­cal book he ar­gues that it is still pos­si­ble to have the de­ci­sion over­turned. Clegg sug­gests that a siz­able pro­por­tion of the Bri­tish elec­torate who voted in favour of leav­ing the EU have changed their minds — not least be­cause many of the prom­ises from the leave side turned out to be hol­low and full of in­ac­cu­ra­cies. As a re­sult, Clegg be­lieves it is their demo­cratic right to have an­other vote. He sug­gests that fail­ure to stop Brexit will set Bri­tain back for gen­er­a­tions, some­thing, of course, which may have a knock-on ef­fect in this coun­try.
