Product description

Review

"If you read no other book this year, read Who Owns Britain by Kevin Chahill. Whatever your politics, it will make you hair curl." (Scotland on Sunday)

"It is the sound and fury of Cahill's polemics that infuse a rare vigour to his prose." (Spectator)

"...the first comprehensive analysis of land-ownership in Britain since the nineteenth century... it is hard to believe that we've waited for a hundred years for this book... a vital and illuminating study of great political significance." (Andy Wightman, author of Who Owns Scotland)

Synopsis

This is a critique of both the landowning artistocracy and the Land Registry. Cahill argues that our present system of landownership is of material detriment to the vast majority of homeowners in the UK, while many of the wealthiest landowners in the country pay no rates and actually receive money in the form of grants and subsidies.
