Will Brexit boost jobs? Or wreck the NHS? Or cause food shortages? From strawberries to passports, the broadcaster and journalist Gavin Esler sets out how the most momentous change in Britain for decades will change everyday life. From the food markets of Kent to NHS operating theatres to the boardrooms of big employers, Brexit throws up many surprises.
Gavin discusses in his book Brexit without the Bull**** (Canbury Press 2019) which reveals how leaving the European Union will affect: food and diet, health and the NHS, jobs and industry, education and travel to europe.
Brexit Without the Bull**** is not about the Brexit you were told you were getting. It’s about the one that is arriving.
