5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 11 April 2008
This review is from: Squandered (Paperback)
A coruscating review of all New Labours works since 1997 and how they have squandered an eye-popping £1.2 trillion (£50,000 per family, and counting) implementing its promises of 1997 to transform our hospitals, schools, police, pensions and social services.

A government that in 2008 seems to be making similar promises to that it made in 1997, except forgetting the epic scale of spending over its period in office that in truth appears to have delivered very little other than a vast and self-regarding bureaucracy.

Every page drips with contempt for New Labour and it's architect that currently sits in No.10. Read this and it is unlikely you'll vote Labour at the next election.

This book brings into sharp focus all my worst feelings about political events in the last 15 years. A superb analysis and a MUST READ for anyone interested in Britain's future. Ignore at your peril!!.
My vote will go to the political party willing to stand up and implement the policy suggestions in the last chapter.

coruscating means 'glittering', I guess you mean 'excoriating'!
