The Brexit FactBase story

The Brexit
FactBase story

In the run-up to the 2016 referendum, like many people, I was disappointed by the lack of Brexit facts. Even now, there are many Brexit myths and, sometimes, lies that go unchallenged.

For over 25 years I worked with a major management consulting firm, helping clients solve difficult problems. Objective and independent advice was essential to help my clients navigate complex, politically-sensitive issues.

So, back in May 2016, a friend and I prepared a Brexit presentation for friends and neighbours (leavers and remainers). They found the lively discussion helpful and informative.

To make it easier to access the material, I created this website to provide concise, up-to-date facts on Brexit without political spin. (To maintain objectivity and independence, this is all pro bono – I fund the costs of developing and running the website out of my own pocket.)

It went live in April 2018 and the material continues to evolve and update. The 14 topic headings range from ‘What is the EU?’ through key issues like Trade, Immigration and Impact Assessment to ‘No Deal’. Please scroll down to the Contents map for the full coverage and register (just name and email) for free access.

You can find details of Johnson’s proposals to the EU, in the ‘negotiations’ section and details of Yellowhammer in the ‘no deal’ section.

Here’s a link to my paper on a framework to assess Johnson’s proposals.
