3.0 out of 5 stars
Too repetitive, 20 Mar 2014
A slightly interesting and informative account of British politics, but it unfortunately becomes tiresome and repetitive about 2/3 of the way through.
The bulk of the book appears to be the author arguing with himself over the fusion of executive with legislative - and just when you think the topic is changing, it's back to what feels like a messy internal dialogue disputing checks and balances.
With a good trim and a brutal edit, this would've been a fascinating read, but it claws its way back to the argument of accountability far too often, and fails to ever offer a definitive response. That said, given the relatively low price, I would recommend a purchase, just don't be surprised if getting through it starts to feel like a chore when the finish line is almost in sight
