Product description


"a new and insightful book" -- Jenny McCartney , Daily Telegraph

"(a) Snappy little book" --Metro

"Let me recommend this book to anyone who is perturbed by what has been going on and would like to see the hopeful signs to develop into something more lasting." --New Culture Forum

"The main argument of the book is entirely accurate. Britain has created many good things in the country and in the world though often those who did the creating were the ones who found many of the solid British virtues tiresome and stifling, a curious contradiction noted by George Orwell many years ago, but those achievements have been deliberately denied and belittled by a weird self-hating elite" --Conservative History Journal
