5.0 out of 5 stars Every citizen of the UK should read this, 5 Mar. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Rotten State of Britain: Who Is Causing the Crisis and How to Solve It (Paperback)
The Rotten State of Britain successfully analyses the past 15 years of Britain's economic, political, and social history in an effort to get to the root of the country's current overriding problems. This is a book that every citizen of the UK should read, for it speaks not about policies foreign to the average taxpayer but issues that affect daily life. From the overwhelming state of surveillance to the rising absence of civil liberties, not to mention the soaring taxes, which are too often wasted on failing programs and companies, most of the topics get right to the effects on the citizen. Even more daunting are his alarming studies in healthcare, education, and the state of welfare. The Rotten State of Britain is not a book on cynicism but realism, and if the rest of the country becomes aware of these follies, the problems may become easier to correct. An excellent read from beginning to end and a work that people from every background can enjoy, it is thorough, concise, and riveting.
