Customer Review

on 29 April 2008
In the 1970s there was a seminal work by Bacon & Eltis "Britain's Economic Problem: Too Few Producers" which showed how much superstructure was crushing a weak productive base. Now we get to see what happens when the Bureaucratic Monolith starts sucking pension funds dry and stealth-taxing because business has migrated to tax havens or manufacturing to China.

We are being treated to the Soviet Phenomenon of top-heavy bureaucracy sucking the lifeblood from the populace and enslaving them to service The State. This book shows how out-of-control The Executive is in Britain, and how democratic control and accountability does not exist at ANY level of government or public administration.

The political parties are simply fronts for The Bureaucracy and it is like Norman Seigneurs plundering a conquered island.
