Essential reading, 7 Dec 2010
This is a well written, articulate review of the insidious diminution of long cherished rights over the past 15 years or so. It is written with a sharp eye for detail and provides a convincing argument to those who may doubt that things have really changed that much. My only criticism would be that Mr Raab's party political views sometimes intrude unnecessarily but given it was written in the run-up to the 2010 election (where Mr Raab was a successful Conservative candidate)this is perhaps understandable. It remains to be seen what influence Dominic Raab MP has on government policy now he is closer to the centre of power This book provides a good grounding for those concerned about the erosion of liberty in the UK in recent times.
