Read it anyway even if you don't like Britain and maybe you will understand the reason why you didn't like Britain and change your mind as you now have a better understanding as to why. Perhaps the truly guilty are not those who gained positions from which they could do such harm - proroguing Parliament and lying to the sovereign for example - but the backbench MPs who thoroughly understood that their leaders were unfit for high office, but stuck by them, trooped through the division lobbies, hoping to curry favour and preferment.

Bold and incisive as ever, James O'Brien reveals the shady network of influence that has created a broken Britain of strikes, shortages and scandals. Across ten acerbic and angry chapters, the popular talk show host and author of former Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month How to Be Right takes the politicians, advisers and media moguls responsible for Britain's current crisis to task. His daily current affairs programme on LBC is the most popular talk show on commercial radio with over 1. And it's packed full of facts about Brexit, Think Tanks and Tory sleaze that will help you win argument after argument with your irritating relatives - Stewart Lee You may also be interested in.Anyone who ever voted for the politicians at the heart of this book, and responsible for the harm done to Britain's reputation, should also take some of the blame.

This book will help explain about things that bother you and have concerned us Brits too for so long. Break ranks with the man once described as the “conscience of liberal Britain”, and you risk being seen as a useful idiot not only by him, but by the 1. I don’t mean that whatever one says will have no effect on their success, though in the case of James O’Brien’s How They Broke Britain, which comprises an extended “charge sheet” of the nine men and one woman its author believes set the UK on a course of unnecessary decline, this is indubitably the case. Those still too blind in that sense will probably not deign to look at it, or if they do, will deny multitudinous, balefully interconnected and provable facts just as they did when incapable/unwilling to consider ‘Project Fear’; others of us, who never felt any urge to align with the ‘Do-Badders’, should at least draw wry consolation from this thorough confirmation of what (and who) went wrong. While O’Brien has always seemed perfectly nice whenever I’ve met him – three times, and only ever in the course of work – I’d be lying if I said I like the way he behaves on social media.Nigel Farage, the show’s latest political signing, may well end up having to eat more than his share of kangaroo anuses. He maps the web connecting dark think tanks to Downing Street, the journalists involved in selling it to the public and the media bosses pushing their own agendas.

It is staggering what a few have done to affect the entire Nation and how for a long time so many of us have just felt helpless and overwhelmed and why there wasn't a voice speaking with freedom on public platforms, without frustratingly being suppressedWell here is that voice - speaking for the people. It also makes his criticisms of some extremely hard-working journalists (the BBC’s former political editor, Laura Kuenssberg; the presenter of Today, Nick Robinson) seem snide and unnecessary.

A critic from the right who picks a fight with How They Broke Britain may be dismissed by O’Brien as just another hateful ideologue or client journalist, any review further evidence of the incestuous, corrupt and heinously biased world he works so hard to decry. The book is already a bestseller; a recent event promoting it required a venue change, so great was the demand for tickets. O'Brien's new book confirms that not only are our politicians and their backers as corrupt and incompetent as you suspected they were, it's actually worse than that. Each baddie gets a chapter: Rupert Murdoch, Paul Dacre and Andrew Neil represent the press; Nigel Farage, David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss are his politicians; Matthew Elliott and Dominic Cummings of Vote Leave bring up the rear (like a pantomime horse). A damning indictment of the British media/politics revolving-door and the contemptibility of its inhabitants, interwoven with tasteful satire which offers much-needed comic relief in an otherwise bleak assessment of.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Save our land- start by getting people to read this- we need Britain to be healed from it's brokeness. But this doesn’t mean that free speech isn’t a real problem, or that some liberal-left men haven’t abdicated all responsibility for asking questions about it, particularly as it pertains to women’s rights, the better to have an easier, more saintly seeming life.Over ten chapters, each focusing on a particular person complicit in the downfall, James O'Brien reveals how a select few have conspired - sometimes by incompetence, sometimes by design - to bring Britain to its knees. You can’t have your face on the cover of your book and not be a brand, and his requires him to be firmly on one side – the other side – when he must know that aspects of the current politics of the left are just as muddled, fractious and potentially dangerous as those of the right. Personally, I’m as suspicious as he is of the Mail’s newfound support for freedom of speech on university campuses.
