Forty years ago, Britain joined the club of European nations. The idea was to guarantee peace and prosperity on the continent through ‘ever closer union’ following centuries of terrible wars. But after four decades of membership, costing the UK more than £200 billion, public disenchantment with the European Union has never been so great. In Au Revoir, Europe David Charter, Europe Correspondent for The Times, looks at what went wrong – and what happens next. It charts Britain’s increasing detachment from the European project amid a barrage of bureaucracy, mindboggling expenditure and concern at sharing sovereignty for goals that were never truly embraced. From trade to transport, fishing to finance, investment to immigration, the decision that Britain takes on its future relationship with Brussels will touch many parts of everyday life. In presenting the unvarnished truth of what it would really mean for Britain to say goodbye, this book is a unique contribution to the European debate and essential reading for all.
