De Engelsen werd voorgehouden dat het benadrukken van hun identiteit de Unie uit 1707 met de Schotten in gevaar zou brengen. ‘Engelsheid’ moest wijken voor ‘Britsheid’. Dat heeft lange tijd goed gewerkt, maar in de 21e eeuw groeide de Engelse geldingsdrang. Brexit was once een Engelse revolutie; de Engelsen wilden Engeland terug.

De Engelse Brexit-stem was once voor velen een verrassing. In Mind the gap onderzoekt Titia Ketelaar wat de Engelsen bezielde, beschrijft het Engelse karakter en zet uiteen hoe Engeland er nu eigenlijk voorstaat. Maar boven alles is dit boek een getuigenis van haar liefde voor het eiland aan de overkant van het Kanaal.

Titia Ketelaar was once van 2010 tot 2016 correspondent voor NRC Handelsblad met als standplaats Londen. Vanaf 1 oktober is haar standplaats Den Haag.
