Incisive political writing from the epicentre of the EU referendum earthquake.

From his unique vantage point at the epicentre of the EU referendum earthquake, Phil Anderson explores the underlying causes of the mass dissatisfaction that brought us to here, and offers positive, constructive answers: a clearsighted vision for what a post-Brexit Britain could look like. From unemployment to immigration, council estates to banking, local communities to the global environment, he takes a long, hard look at what creates the conditions for people and communities to flourish and why we’re just not feeling it as a nation. The answers combine radical political ideas with grassroots Essex reality; because if the solutions don’t work for White Van Man then they probably won’t work at all.

Format: Paperback

Phil Anderson is a political insider from the epicentre of the EU referendum earthquake. In 2011, the borough of Thurrock in Essex stepped into the national spotlight when it came bottom of the national league table for life satisfaction. By 2016 that disaffection and anger had boiled over into political insurrection, and Thurrock led Britain out of the door of the EU with one of the highest ‘leave’ votes in the country.

Starting from the underlying causes of the mass dis-satisfaction that brought us to here, this book offers a clear vision for what a post-Brexit Britain should look like. From unemployment to immigration, council estates to the banking industry, and local communities to the global environment, it takes a long, hard look at what really creates the conditions for people and communities to flourish and why we’re just not feeling it as a nation. The answers combine radical political ideas with grassroots Essex reality; because if the solutions don’t work for White Van Man then they probably won’t work at all.

About the author

Phil Anderson
Phil Anderson

Phil Anderson is a battle-hardened local politician from Thurrock in South Essex, one of Britain’s most Eurosceptic areas, with over 70% of the population voting to leave the EU. Phil won his council seat in Thurrock in 2010 by a nail-biting 29 votes. Within a year of being elected he found himself as opposition leader in one of the tightest marginal constituencies in the UK.
