This review is from: The Abolition of Britain: From Winston Churchill to Princess Diana (Paperback)
I have admired Hitchens for a long time, mainly through his blog and weekly column for 'The Daily Mail'. He is one of the very few authentically conservative social and political commentators writing in Britain today, having long since set his face against the prevaling liberal-fascist orthodoxy which thinks that it can legislate and spend its way to a utopia in which there will be the abolition of human suffering. Perhaps this is why the author wrote in 2008 of the enormous difficulty he had experienced in getting it published and into bookshops.

This book makes for interesting but chastening reading as its author charts the profound social, economic and political decline of a once great people over the space of a single generation. It is to be considered essential reading for those of a conservative outlook because it reveals just how far to the left the traditional political parties have drifted, to the point where is de facto no conservative party left. No where is this more evident, in my view, than in the field of education in which successive Conservative governments failed to redress the Labour 'reforms' of the Seventies.
