The Alternative Manifesto: A 12-Step Programme to Remake Britain

5.0 out of 5 stars Too sensible to be taken seriously by politicians, 17 Feb 2010
The new intake of MPs should be made to sit down and read this as their second task as public servants (the first being to fill in their initial expenses claim, obviously). Butler has trawled through the best ideas of the current political classes and filtered out most (though, pleasingly, not all) of the looney tune gimmicks. The result is a thoughtful agenda for running the country that does not trip itself up by having to shoehorn ideology into the mix. The ideas are so sensible they have no chance of being adopted by the gurning sound-bite automatons who extraterrestrial powers have inserted into the festering carapaces of our elected representatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Markets explained for non-economists, 11 Jun 2008
This new book is a delight. My son is thinking of studying economics for A Level so I leave it by his desk during the day in the hope he will get a proper feel for the subject through such an accessible and entertaining (and mercifully short) primer.
