Format: Paperback
Light hearted and entertaining take on a serious subject. Should be read by all disillusioned ordinary people. I thought John Major's government was bad, but this lot since 1997 takes the biscuit, and illustrates eveything that is bad about our ruling elite. Read it before the next general election!

If even half of this stuff is only half true, it makes you wonder how they've survived in office for so long. Clement Atlee must've drilled himself halfway to Adelaide by now as these venal baboons desecrate the socialist vision in the name of self aggrandizement and a barley concealed rush to join the ranks of the moneyed classes they spent the previous 18 years pillorying. Don't read if you're an easily depressed socialist.
