Brexit has been the most significant decision in modern British political history. But the money and influence that delivered it was far from the grass-roots campaign often depicted in the media. Democracy for Sale documents the rise of dark money on both sides of the Atlantic, showing how it has circumvented – and corrupted – democratic mechanisms. We hear from political communications gurus who have made data the most priceless commodity in politics, the whistle-blowers and transparency activists fighting against the increasing influence of money in politics, and see how easy it is to evade the cash-strapped regulators vainly struggling to police our democracy.
