Vernon Coleman has long been a waspish, eccentric but incisive commentator on British (and, in this book, global) political, social and economic events. In "Gordon is a Moron", he effectively demolished the aura of success (if it still exists) which once surrounded Gordon Brown's record as Chancellor of the Exchequer. Here, he looks at broader trends, both nationally and globally. If he's right, what happens next will be very nasty indeed.

His thesis begins with the observation that a combination of inept government and greedy bankers is driving the UK into bankruptcy and obscurity. It would be hard to argue against this, with Britain teetering on the brink of a debt implosion.

His strictures on America are visceral, but contain elements of solid analysis larded with a fair degree of simple dislike for the US as a country embodying, in the author's opinion, corruption, arrogance, greed and aggression. This is, to put it mildly, rather a sweeping generalisation, but it's a well (if rather hysterically) argued point of view. He thinks that Mr Obama is another Tony Blair - great image, no substance - and one can see where Coleman is coming from here without necessarily agreeing with him.

And so on. Bankers get a bashing; the UK is heading for hyper-inflation (well, we are running the printing presses), and is heading also for an energy crisis (Mr Coleman is a strong believer in Peak Oil). Law and order will disintegrate as an arrogant, increasingly out-of-touch police force imposes draconian laws enacted by Labour (I certainly agree with his assessment of the rate at which individual liberties are being eroded; and the police seem to have evolved from "the long arm of the law" to "the mailed fist of the [Labour] state").

Vernon Coleman's book is a true life horror story of what an incompetent Government have done to our once great country, and how we will be suffering the consequences for countless years to come. We are facing a financial apocalypse, the like of which has never been known, and it's going to get worse. If you are a UK citizen and you are squeamish about your future prospects, it may be an idea not to read this book, but ignoring the facts has never been the best thing to do. You MUST read this book to prepare yourself for what's in store for us. If you can read it an ever vote Labour again there must be something seriously wrong with you.

Vernon Coleman's brutally frank opinions of what has happened to Britain during the last twelve years cannot be ignored. If you value your quality of life and everything your country stood for wake up from your apathy and start making your views heard. Another absorbing read.

Everyone who loves our country should read this book and think deeply about the future of the UK and our children's future too........and take an interest in it!! Its too important to leave it to a bunch of selfish and incompetent politicians and big business fat cats!!

As the ordinary people of this country we should make our voices heard and stop it being taken away from us!

In his latest book Vernon Coleman continues his remorsless demolition of the "facts" of modern life in his usual iconoclastic style. Essential reading for all those who think the mass media is designed to inform. If the truth depresses then get used to depression, would seem the best advice: it will soon become the common lot, even if only half the information in this book proves true.

AS usual V.C. 'talks for Britain' but the message is required reading if you want, or need, to really know the dreadful things that have been going on for years.

What is especially disturbing is that it is almost certain to get worse!

Forewarned is forearmed!

There were some decent and interesting nuggets but this was a rant in places, often repetitive and probably a regurgitation of much of what the author has published previously. OK to pick up and put down but not suitable for an evening "curled up with a book"

Firstly bought this for 1p plus £2.80pp, arrived within 48 hours, almost brand new - thank you for the fabulous bargain Awesome Books. Secondly just finished it - an informative but very depressing read but then the harsh brutal truth usually is depressing. Vernon doesn't say anything that I cannot see for myself - its just that I choose not to look. If I were in a position to I would emigrate as things are not looking good despite the fact that every day the value of our houses is going up and up and up - but to be fair anyone outside the BRIC countries is in for a nasty shock sooner or later.
