Summary

Faced with the prospect that the UK electorate might be asked whether it wants in or out of the EU in 2017, Paul Kent discovered he didn't have the first clue which side he was on.
There are literally hundreds of books and websites that deal with the history, workings, constitution and finances of the EU. But they all tend to fall into one - or both - of two categories: hopelessly biased or hopelessly boring.
No longer is Euroscepticism the exclusive province of 'swivel-eyed' activists deep in the Tory shires; it has now gone mainstream to the point where even the metropolitan political elite have had to sit up and take notice of what is being portrayed as a grassroots rebellion.
But what is this antipathy based on? Is there a reasoned and reasonable explanation reflecting the prevailing economic, social and political climate in this country? Or is it naked prejudice pure and simple?
One thing’s for sure - the standard of debate on the issue in the UK is for the most part lamentable, embarrassing, and even a little scary, considering the seriousness of the subject.
So instead of relying on journalists, bureaucrats or politicians to feed us their distorted, dull or partisan half-truths, find out for yourself with this short, pithy look into what exactly the EU does for us, puts everything in perspective and doesn't try to tell you which way to vote.

Not that much of a lowdown.

David Charters book is better at giving an issue by issue comparison. Swears too much.

Biased

I intend to vote leave and found this book biased against the EU. I don't feel I got what I paid for, which was balance.
