The events that led David Cameron to call, and lose, the 2016 EU referendum, and the seismic impact of that fateful decision on our political landscape.
Cameron, against the advice of his friend and chancellor George Osborne, his chief whip and his coalition partners, became convinced that pledging a renegotiation and referendum was necessary to resolve the increasing instability of Britain’s place in Europe. After leading his party to a surprise electoral victory in 2015, which saw him win a Conservative majority, Cameron’s renegotiation faced huge challenges from the start. He struggled to persuade his two closest allies, Michael Gove and Boris Johnson, to support the case for remaining, which left him struggling to stay in control of a campaign riven by party in-fighting, ‘post-truth’ politics and strategic challenges.
