These tube-style Brexit maps are a clever way of visualising the myriad of sectors and issues the withdrawal process impacts. Just by looking at the maps, it becomes easier to understand the scope and scale of the negative consequences facing the UK.
Each map focuses on a UK region, with each each zone representing a policy sphere, each line representing a sector and each station representing a particular Brexit issue.
The maps come from Brexit Mapping created by:
- Sietske de Groot: an experienced EU specialist who helps businesses to adapt to the changing commercial environment for when the UK leaves the EU. She has longstanding experience in advising firms on EU regulation and accessing overseas markets. She is founder of TradePeers Ltd, a market access consultancy for SMEs.
- Dr Maxwell Roberts: a psychologist who studies human reasoning and intelligence, and specialises in information design. He teaches at the University of Essex and is the world’s leading specialist in schematic map design. Max advises on transit map usability and designs maps himself. See his work at Tube Map Central.

These maps are absolutely brilliant, and instantly show the complexity of the issue across a number of sectors, regions and industries. Moreover collectively they demonstrate the additional breadth of interactions between different regions of Great Britain and the EU. Beats a thousand lines of political rhetoric!

You could just have a photo of a train that’s become derailed, the government insisting that the train is going to break all speed records and that derailing it was the plan all along, and Nigel Farage saying that if they really want to break all speed records they should set the train on fire.
