From the writer and co-founder of openDemocracy, a forensic and sweeping polemic

We have made a video to get out word of the book. Its getting lots of views and has a terrific cast reading from it. You can see it here. It is also on Facebook being widely viewed. Please share it if you are also on Facebook. There will be a public meeting on 31 October around the book with Caroline Lucas, Suzanne Moore and others. Tickets here.  A cracking review of Lure by Fintan O'Toole enlived the Irish Times over the weekend. Perhaps O'Toole explains why so many in the Anglo-British political-media caste does not want to think through the implications of Brexit. Hope you enjoy and want to share the video.
