Gavin Esler: Brexit Without The Bullshit

Gavin Esler is an award winning television and radio broadcaster, writer and journalist. His latest book, 'Brexit Without the Bullshit', examines in rigorous, insightful and revealing detail the facts about how Brexit will affect our daily lives. From strawberries to passports, he presents a frank guide to the most momentous change in British life for decades, revealing how leaving the EU will affect food and diet, health and the NHS, jobs and industry, education, travel in Europe, etc. From the food markets of Kent to NHS operating theatres to the boardrooms of big employers, Brexit throws up many surprises. Brexit Without the Bullshit is not about the Brexit you were told you were getting, it’s about the one that is arriving.

Gavin is known for his reporting and presenting work at the BBC, and has been the main presenter on 'Dateline London' on the BBC News Channel and BBC World and a regular on numerous other programmes, including 'HARDtalk'. He left the BBC in 2018 and is now a freelance journalist and writer.

Formerly Gavin was the BBC’s Chief North America Correspondent for eight years, based in Washington and frequently reporting from the White House mostly during the Clinton presidency. On returning to the UK, he joined the presenting team on the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs programme 'Newsnight'.

He is currently a columnist for 'The National' (UAE) newspaper, Chancellor of the University of Kent and a visiting lecturer in various academic institutions, large corporations, and public service organisations including the British military.

Gavin is also the author of five novels, 'Loyalties', 'Deep Blue', 'The Blood Brother', 'A Scandalous Man' and 'Power Play', and two other non-fiction books, 'The United States of Anger' and 'Lessons from the Top'.
