Abstract

A great deal of the Leave argument centres on the claim that the UK would be a big player still outside the EU. But would it? Dennis Leech uses voting power analysis to explore how the UK standing alone is likely to rank in the world – and the conclusions are pessimistic. On reasonable assumptions, the UK would be outside the top ten players in world terms.
