A delightful and essential compendium of words, new, old or abused through Brexit.

To mistake grossly, to err very widely. 'Someone had blundered' (Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Charge of the Brexit Brigade)

An easy death. Strangulation by EU regulations, according to Brexiters.

From 'cock-up' to 'tumorous' via 'buffoon' and 'May', Johnson's Brexit Dictionary is a delightful, witty and essential compendium inspired by Dr Johnson's original and updated for our turbulent times.
