it was amazing
bookshelves: politics

If like me you are left wing and a bit common this is the book for you.

On a more serious note this is one of those books that will change the way that you see you see the world and unfortunately anger will be part of that process.

It is packed with statistics and everyone knows that there are lies, damned lies and statistics. However you don't need much analysis to know that over the past 30 years working class people have been sidelined, ignored, ridiculed and attacked. You don't need statistics to know that the Labour Party has abandoned the working classes in order to chase the middle England voter. You don't need statistics to know that racism, sexism and ageism are deemed unacceptable by the liberal elite but poking fun and the working classes is great fun.

One of my books of the year.
