Abstract

The chapter argues that Lexit’s critique of the European Union and its case for withdrawal is rooted in what I term pre-critical understanding of political economy. I argue that the consequences of this understanding is two-fold. First, that Lexit culminates in a reproduction of the shortcomings that they identify with the EU and, secondly, that it brings with it troubling echoes of a past that in many ways, the very existence of the EU sought to counter.
