I see the propaganda arm of the right wing blue rinse brigade are having a field day here, giving a thoroughly good book by one of the giants of recent political history one star reviews in order to undermine it`s credibility. Ho,hum, so predictable. Most thinking people have woken up to the fact that Britain has been left in ruins by the decade or so of wilfully reckless politics that thatcher and her far right cronies inflicted upon this country. The destruction of the post war consensus, the destruction of british manufacturing industry, the break up and sell-of for private gain of industries and utilities you and me used to own. I grew up in the sixties and everywhere there was hope, optimism and the taking for granted that we could never go back to the the dreadful spectre of life in pre ww2 britain, a better future was there for the taking. Then there was Thatcher. We are left with a divided, crime-ridden wasteland of a country where corporate vultures pick over the bones of what`s left of our economy and culture and ordinary, decent people who`s only aspiration is to lead a family life, find and keep a well-paid job and salvage some hope for their children`s future can go and pick over the leavings. Don`t listen to the one-star propagandists, Gord did all right, both with this spot-on book and with his handling of the british economy and the banking crisis.
