What led to Britain leaving the EU?

Posted on: March 12, 2020

Full length interview with Julie Smith, author of the timely book: The UK’s Journeys into and out of the EU: Destinations Unknown. Julie shares insights into the UK’s history with the EU prior to joining the single market and how it shaped UK’s relationship with the European Union as it now decides to leave.


The UK’s relationship with the EU has been heated over many years, and yet is one that have never been very much understood. It’s only really in the last couple of years with the referendum that people have really started thinking about ‘how did we end up in the common market and then the European Union’.
