In Prospect's October issue: Ahead of the 31st October Brexit deadline, Peter Foster, the Daily Telegraph's Europe Editor, charts the ups and downs of three years of Brexit talks and explains how the deal died.

Elsewhere in the issue: Wendell Steavenson travels to some of the important stops along the proposed route of the HS2 train network and asks why big infrastructure projects in Britain seem to prove quite so costly and complex, ultimately asking the question: should the project be saved? Barbara Speed reports on the anti-vaxxer movement and uncovers the real story behind the falling immunisation rates in the UK.

Also: Donald Macintyre profiles Unite boss Len McCluskey, historian Richard Evans looks at the parallels between the fall of the Weimar Republic and today's politics and Lisa Appignanesi writes on Susan Sontag.
