GCSE level right wing rant,
This review is from: Britannia Unchained: Global Lessons for Growth and Prosperity (Paperback)
Reading the early reviews about this silly so called book, it is apparent that the authors have done no authentic research and have merely quoted spurious newspaper articles. Amatuer at best, right wing cry baby rhetoric otherwise, written by a group of over privileged rich kids, who no-doubt had their mummies spoon feed them until they were in their teens. To describe British workers as 'idlers' is not only shameful and wicked, but shows a total lack of respect for those who work harder in a day than these Tory idiots and loafers do in their useless lifetimes. As for writing that we should be more like China? Well, I don't think trying to emulate one of the most brutal regimes in modern history is the best way forward. Just goes to prove that these ignorant Tory fools don't have a clue. What a bunch of wretches they must be!

I am intrigued you say the book describes British workers as 'idlers'. If true, clearly untrue. But I can't find the reference (admittedly I am only half way through the book as opposed to the reviews). Can you point me in the right direction please? Many thanks.

Thank you for this helpful review. If a raving class war lefty finds the book objectionable, it may well be in the real world and worth a read.

Well the book was written by those with an academic rating of pond life, so you should just about manage to understand it. The only class war being waged ol' chap is the one against decent hard working folk. If you think that most of us should be clapped in chains like the Indians and Chinese, I suggest that you go live and work in one of these countries, whose work ethics you so admire. Send me a postcard and let me know how you get on.

You obviously haven't read the book. China is hardly mentioned, and India isn't a major feature. The examples used are Switzerland, Israel and Brazil.
Never let facts get in the way of your rants, though.
Your posts are an abuse of the Amazon review system.
As for your impertinent suggestion that I go and live and work in one of these countries, I have lived and worked in one for twenty-three years. Unlike you, I actually know what I'm talking about.

He's such a wally it hurts. I don't think Patel's family, flushed out of Uganda with nothing who then set up a shop can be described as privileged. A daft ideological review from a 'political' clown.
