Description

The most important political book of the year and a fascinating must-read for anyone who cares about Britain. Nigel Farage, the show’s latest political signing, may well end up having to eat more than his share of kangaroo anuses. 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.

Save our land- start by getting people to read this- we need Britain to be healed from it's brokeness. He maps the web connecting dark think tanks to Downing Street, the journalists involved in selling it to the public and the media bosses pushing their own agendas. You can’t have your face on the cover of your book and not be a brand, and his requires him to be firmly on one side – the other side – when he must know that aspects of the current politics of the left are just as muddled, fractious and potentially dangerous as those of the right. 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. All 10 more than deserve his ire, and ours; there seems little point in my going over their entitlement and casual destruction here.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.

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). 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. 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. No, what I mean is that some books, at least in the current landscape, are hard to criticise; to argue with them is to incorporate yourself, however unwittingly, into the framework they purport to stand against.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Anyone who ever voted for the politicians at the heart of this book, and responsible for the harm done to Britain's reputation, should also take some of the blame. The damage is partly caused by those who don't pay attention, but turn out to vote once every 4 or 5 years, giving an ego boost to charlatans and crooks who pretend to have our interests at heart. I don’t mean that whatever one says will have no effect on their success, though in the case of James O’Brien’s How They Broke Britain, which comprises an extended “charge sheet” of the nine men and one woman its author believes set the UK on a course of unnecessary decline, this is indubitably the case. 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.
