Excellent. Everything that is annoying about the way society is going, all analysed. The beginnings of a way forward suggested too. Why isn't this in the good reads choice awards books to vote for???

Ben Hathaway Because its analysed in such a way as to ignore the absolute failure of the Labour party en masse, and is wedded so dogmatically to the author's incredibly left wing views of the world as to be rendered close to a comic.
He does have a point, but continually thinking trade unions are the answer, and ignoring the impact of globalisation, makes a mockery of his analysis.
He reaches exactly the right conclusions, no questions about it, but there are no answers in this text. Its GCSE socialism for people indoctrinated in left wing clown-based economics. 50% of the book is great, 50% has been hijacked by an angry toddler. Its mindblowing how this has a 4.2 rating.
