In 1984, "The People" branded Ian Bone 'the most dangerous man in Britain'. They were only too close to the truth. From the inner city riots of 1981 to the miners' strike and beyond, the butler's son and founder of "Class War" was indeed a greater thorn in Margaret Thatcher's side than the useless blatherings of the Official Opposition. "Class War" was the real opposition...more

Love him or hate him, Ian Bone has led quite the colourful life and has always been committed to trying to change things from the outset to the present day.

While I actually enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't help being left with the distinct impression that Bash The Rich was basically a platform for the author to promote himself.

Worth a read, but don't expect too many exciting details of rioting and disorder.
