Book Description

16 Sep 2011
Written by five new Tory MPs, this is a book about the future of the United Kingdom and the future direction of the Conservative Party. It is unlikely the Conservatives will fight for a further 15 years of coalition government after 2015. Rather it will fight for its own separate mandate, reinforcing its own political values. Nearly 150 new Conservative MPs were elected in the 2010 General Election, the largest single number of new entrants since 1945. This has provided the party with new blood and a fresh face, with an average age of below 50 for the first time ever. Within this group is the future generation of the Conservative party whose opinions and ideas will come to shape the Party and British politics. In After the Coalition seven new Members of Parliament from this group, representing a diverse range of constituencies and a wide experience of politics, have joined together to ask what challenges the Party has to face, and to investigate the ideas of the future that will seek to overcome them.

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!
