Product description

Review

"Am loving the Banned List. Will be my stock Xmas pressie. Was reading on bus earlier; woman next to me started tutting because I laughed too much." --Philip Cowley, Professor of Politics at Nottingham University

"Reading the brilliant - or should that be superb? - John Rentoul Banned List manifesto. Must buy." --Benedict Brogan, Deputy Editor, The Daily Telegraph

About the Author

John Rentoul heads the committee that maintains the Banned List - his ever-growing collection of over-used, meaningless and offensive words and phrases. He is also chief political commentator for the Independent on Sunday, and visiting fellow at Queen Mary, University of London, where he teaches contemporary history. Previously he has worked for the BBC and New Statesman, and on an oil rig in the North Sea.
