About this deal

The most important political book of the year and a fascinating must-read for anyone who cares about Britain. Over ten chapters, each focusing on a particular person complicit in the downfall, James O'Brien reveals how a select few have conspired - sometimes by incompetence, sometimes by design - to bring Britain to its knees. And it's packed full of facts about Brexit, Think Tanks and Tory sleaze that will help you win argument after argument with your irritating relatives - Stewart Lee You may also be interested in. His daily current affairs programme on LBC is the most popular talk show on commercial radio with over 1. Across ten acerbic and angry chapters, the popular talk show host and author of former Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month How to Be Right takes the politicians, advisers and media moguls responsible for Britain's current crisis to task.

Every Chapter is a revelation - From the first line of the Introduction- you get hooked and want to read more. Bold and incisive as ever, James O'Brien reveals the shady network of influence that has created a broken Britain of strikes, shortages and scandals. O'Brien's new book confirms that not only are our politicians and their backers as corrupt and incompetent as you suspected they were, it's actually worse than that. His forensic approach is joined by unerring aim - he does more than point the finger, he delivers a rapier thrust to the vital organs of those who have done the damage.All 10 more than deserve his ire, and ours; there seems little point in my going over their entitlement and casual destruction here.

A damning indictment of the British media/politics revolving-door and the contemptibility of its inhabitants, interwoven with tasteful satire which offers much-needed comic relief in an otherwise bleak assessment of.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.It is staggering what a few have done to affect the entire Nation and how for a long time so many of us have just felt helpless and overwhelmed and why there wasn't a voice speaking with freedom on public platforms, without frustratingly being suppressedWell here is that voice - speaking for the people. Nigel Farage, the show’s latest political signing, may well end up having to eat more than his share of kangaroo anuses. It also makes his criticisms of some extremely hard-working journalists (the BBC’s former political editor, Laura Kuenssberg; the presenter of Today, Nick Robinson) seem snide and unnecessary. Perhaps the truly guilty are not those who gained positions from which they could do such harm - proroguing Parliament and lying to the sovereign for example - but the backbench MPs who thoroughly understood that their leaders were unfit for high office, but stuck by them, trooped through the division lobbies, hoping to curry favour and preferment.

Break ranks with the man once described as the “conscience of liberal Britain”, and you risk being seen as a useful idiot not only by him, but by the 1. Each baddie gets a chapter: Rupert Murdoch, Paul Dacre and Andrew Neil represent the press; Nigel Farage, David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss are his politicians; Matthew Elliott and Dominic Cummings of Vote Leave bring up the rear (like a pantomime horse). Our politicians seem most interested in their own careers, and much of the media only make things worse. If ever the fates aligned in Britain’s apparent favour (eg at the Imperial zenith, 100-odd years ago), it now seems to have been our turn for just about everything to tumble the other way (eg J Poo-byn ‘opposing’ various things, yet not The Topic Of The Day in June 2016).

Personally, I’m as suspicious as he is of the Mail’s newfound support for freedom of speech on university campuses. Even as he gags, no one’s going to ask him any awkward questions about recent events at the Cenotaph. Read it anyway even if you don't like Britain and maybe you will understand the reason why you didn't like Britain and change your mind as you now have a better understanding as to why.
