Product Description

Product Description

In After the Coalition five new Conservative Members of Parliament tackle the challenges of contemporary Britain. They argue that Conservative principles adapted to the modern world are essential for national success. For Britain to prosper in today's global economy, we need a new era of responsibility, for governments as well as individuals. The Conservative Party last won a general election in 1992. The formation of the coalition in 2010 ushered in a politics of compromise for the important task of bringing the deficit under control. At the next election, the Conservative Party may well fight for its own mandate. What that will be and the ideas supporting it need to be defined now. After the Coalition is an attempt to do precisely this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Government without compromise 3 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well researched book into the problems and benefits of the coalition. This book then lays out the need for the Conservative party to win a mandate at the next election to put Conservative policies to the fore. Without the damaging watering down of policies caused by a coalition Kwasi argues the case for a better Britain under a Conservative government.

By Mark Pack TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Collections of policy essays from new or junior MPs rarely have much of an impact or shelf-life in British politics, but however fallible their predictions for the future they can be illuminating about the current state of the authors' party and its broad ideological direction.

So it is with After the Coalition which is very different in tone and hope for the future from last year's Which Way's Up?. The contrast is there in the sub-titles for the two books. Boles had "The future for coalition Britain" whilst the five authors behind this volume have gone for "A Conservative agenda for Britain". Last year the talk was of a possible long-term coalition; this year it is about an impatience to get into a majority government which is purely Conservative.

All five authors - Kwasi Kwarteng, Priti Patel, Dominic Raab, Chris Skidmore and Elizabeth Truss - were newly elected last year, giving a hint of who might be the future stars of the Conservative Party. Between them they have also already written five other books. Indeed, it is books more than blogs which are helping to raise the profiles and make the reputations of a new generation of MPs. For a variety of reasons, high quality blogging by MPs has never taken off in the UK outside a handful of honourable exceptions.

Despite the authors' clear desire for a 100% Conservative government, they wisely avoid political controversy by emphasising that this book is about the world after 2015 rather than a coded call for an end to the current coalition government before then.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money 18 Aug 2012
This is a book written by authors who hold British Workers in complete contempt. They would like us to revert to a sweatshop culture characterised by long hours and low pay. They actively support risk-taking despite the fact that it was just such behaviour that has brought the world economy to its knees. Don't waste your time or your money. With any luck 'after the coalition' these authors and their miserable government will be a dim and distant nightmare to forget!
