Crowdfunder Wants To Educate MPs On Brexit

If you lead a horse to water, can you make it drink?

A Brit has crowdfunded the cost of sending the book “Brexit: What the Hell Happens Now?” by Ian Dunt to all members of Parliament.

Now that the United Kingdom is committed to leaving the European Union, the author is concerned that the MPs are showing a worrying lack of interest in how the exit is going to be negotiated.

Hoping to stop “point-scoring and short term politicking aside and stop the nation from drifting into disaster,” (is that ever possible?) the author has raised only 88% of his goal to date.
