We are delighted to welcome Gavin Esler to Bath. Gavin will talk about research for his latest book and why he campaigns to stop Brexit.
About this Event
Will Brexit boost jobs? Or wreck the NHS? And what about food shortages?
From strawberries to passports, the broadcaster and journalist Gavin Esler presents a no-nonsense guide to the most momentous change in British life for decades. In seven succinct chapters, he sets out how leaving the European Union will affect:
- Food and diet
- Health and the NHS
- Jobs and industry
- Travel to Europe
From the food markets of Kent to NHS operating theatres to the boardrooms of big employers, Brexit throws up many surprises. Some are deeply unpleasant. Brexit Without the Bulls**t is not about the Brexit you were told you were getting. It’s about the one that is arriving.
