This review is from: Fleeced!: How we've been betrayed by the politicians, bureaucrats and bankers - and how much they've cost us (Paperback)
a brilliant, insightful book, but it may make you want to cry! The scale of the kleptocracy & incompetence is mind-boggling (if you are reading this you probably thought this anyway). Some really good, practical ideas are also contained within the book on how to immediately start making an impact into reducing the UKs debt mountain & future, unpayable financial commitments, but the self-serving political classes will avoid all of them.
Another book that should be compulsory reading for all the electorate prior to the election, not just to kick out the moronic excuse for a Gvmt that we are lumbered with, but we need commitments from other parties about what they intend to do to solve the problems highlighted in this book. People need to understand exactly how bad our finances are & to get angry with the political class. They ALL need to change, and public apathy will suit these self-serving hyenas.
This book should be the start, but I wish that they had given more direction on the best ways for readers to take action, or even how we can start working together AGAINST the political class.
