Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 20/9/2019

Description

"What's unique about Brexit is these very polarized views. You're likely hardcore leave or hardcore remain. There's very little electorate in the middle," explains Rob Ford, professor of politics at the University of Manchester and co-author of a new book, Brexitland. "The combination of those two things makes it very hard to hold a compromise position without annoying at least one of the sides, or catastrophically, both."
