Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
TW is a former MP turned academic and is currently Professor at UCL and Birkbeck. His book has drawn plaudits and comparison with Bagehot, Tawney and Orwell. He believes that we have an enviable model of democratic government with a history of political stability. However there have been problems which have brought a distrust of politicians including the expenses scandal, cash for questions conflicts of interest,MPs going to prison for lying on oath and those who find the adversarial system irksome. For the background of all this TW's book provdes an excellent introduction.
