Back to the Future

(p.285) Chapter Ten Heritage
The Great British Reboot

Alex Brummer

Yale University Press

This chapter emphasizes the profound impact that Brexit has had on British and global trade and production associated with the coronavirus pandemic. It examines how it has become fashionable to deprecate Englishness and the admittedly nebulous concept of Global Britain as the UK embarks on a post-Brexit renewal. It also describes the UK's rich heritage at home and overseas as something to be admired and developed, and should not be dismissed as a vacuous slogan. The chapter explores the little recognition given to the part that immigration has played in the advancement of the UK economy. It points out the latest long-term projections from City forecasters CEBR, which cite migration as one of the reasons why the UK economy will outpace that of France and other EU members in the 2020s.
