Product Description

From the Back Cover

Praise for Welcome to Obamaland

In 1997, Britain elected a young, charismatic, inspirational leader, and the entire nation was filled with hope. For the next ten years, we suffered the pain of gradual disillusionment as Tony Blair failed to live up to every single one of our expectations. Why not save yourselves the trouble of slowly having your hearts broken and fast forward straight to the bitter and cynical phase? James Delingpole, one of Britain's most astute political journalists, is here to give you a quick reality bath. He has seen the future--your future--and it doesn't work.
--TOBY YOUNG, author of How to Lose Friends and Alienate PeopleTotally brilliant. As funny as St. Mark Steyn.
--ANDREW ROBERTS, historian and author of A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900

From Welcome to Obamaland Think of me as the hero of H. G. Wells's The Time Machine, bursting into your present, my clothes all tattered and torn, and on my face an expression of dire horror and impending doom. For I am afraid I have a terrible message to impart. I have just seen the future. Your future. And I'm sorry to say it sucks. This new president you've elected. You think he's going to make everything okay, right? Even if you didn't vote for him, you're kind of hoping that some good must surely come of it.
Ha ha ha ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha.
That's the sound of me laughing darkly, by the way. So what, if any, consolation do I have to offer you in these dark and difficult times? Precious little, I'm afraid. Virtually nothing in fact, save the warm, self-affirmatory glow you get when someone tells you you're right, that some day your beliefs will be vindicated, that however long it takes, reality will win out.

Have to say I have always been a bit of a fan of Delingpole's , but I was genuinely disappointed with this effort. The book seemed rushed and incomplete, rather than arguments and opinions I found myself nodding along with, the book just seemed to be a factually dubious rant. I would heartily recommend How to be right as a good example of James's work, this though steer clear of.

James Delingpole is a unique writer, he is able to make statements that are (adopt hushed voice) non-PC and at the same time not offensive. It is what is called the rational, evidence stance. In the 'olden days' even school children were familar with this approach. He writes with disarming refreshing honesty and is recieved warmly by all those with an open mind, well done keep it up.

Format: Hardcover
As the author's father I could be prejudiced, but I think this book deserves more than a dismissive review from someone who says he hasn't read it. No doubt Brits are only now receiving their copies from Amazon, and if you haven't ordered yours yet, I suggest you get on-line. It is a heartfelt warning to the Americans about what they might expect if Obama turns out to be another Blair. It is based on his own experience of life in Britain over the last few years, and contains plenty of apposite and witty comments thereon.

I agree with Mr Delingpole, how can you give an opinion on a book you have never read... judging a book by its cover?
