Product description


Hywel Williams has the mischief of the good journalist and the wide learning of the academic . . . the combination makes for some deadly artillery. (A. N. Wilson)

'The book is written with brio and is valuable as a clever, polemical snapshot of those who appeared to be calling the shots as the centuries burned.'

'Williams has a considerable sense of history'

Williams (book is an intelligent romp that has bite.' The Tablet)

Solid introduction to the idea of a governing elite. (Independent (Review))

'A vivid and detailed picture of the grotesque concentration of power and wealth in this country today.'

A first rate polemic aimed at the rulers (and beneficiaries) of what passes for the UK national state - a wholesale denunciation of an entire political culture (Lobster)

Book Description

The order that governed Britain is dead. The language of global competition, of historical inevitability and of national destiny, has provided cover for a power grab more complete and ruthless than any since the English Civil War. This title offers an analysis, and reveals how power has left the regions and the upholders of the constitution.
