In making a decision whether to buy this book, I was reading your review (and enjoying it) until I read the 4th para, starting with: "Politicians have no idea of what is happening...". Sorry, but are you serious?
Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, was one of the top graduates from Oxford and did a Masters in Economics from Harvard. If you go through the Wiki pages for many of the MPs you shall find how successful these people (the cabinet in particular, but many other MPs and Lords too) have been in their education and careers, they are the ELITE. You think they don't know what's going on?
I really don't mean to sound rude (this is a matter of great importance to me personally), but how naive are you? You honestly think that cabinet ministers NEED to read this book to find out the truth?? You really think that the well-established rumour about MPs not knowing anything BECAUSE THEY ARE TOFFS is true??... They know EVERYTHING because they are toffs. They hatched the whole bloody plot in the first place. They are privileged, and thus educated (properly) and they use this upper hand to deprive EVERYONE ELSE of education and power, even that needed to run their own simple lives.
Personally I hate Labour and Lib Dems and everything they stand for, and if I had to pick a party I would (if I were to vote) lean towards Conservatives...but I don't know enough about them, and I don't trust government full stop. I don't believe in government and I hate politics. In my opinion, it's got to go. So I don't support a party, and I don't vote. People have to be in charge of their own lives, in EVERY single aspect. As soon as you have someone else lawfully running the country, there goes your freedom, your life is now in the hands of that group, and they will only ever look after their own interests. It is inevitable. Humans are FAR too dishonest and selfish to be trusted to look out for other people. I don't care if its Tony Blair or Mother Theresa or anyone else in between.
But if you (or the writer for that matter) seriously think that cabinet ministers are going to "apologise, then act"....then all your suggestion could possibly be met with is the kind of laughter you get from watching an episode of Blackadder.
