LSE Library launches new online Brexit archive


During last year’s referendum on the UK’s continued membership of the EU, LSE Library collected campaigning leaflets which sought to persuade the electorate to vote either to “Remain” or “Leave”. This included both the official campaigning organisations, as well as political parties and individuals.


These leaflets have now been digitised and are freely available online. The Library also digitised campaigning leaflets from the similar 1975 referendum on the common market, which make an interesting comparison.
