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. 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. 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.

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. 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).

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

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. 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.Personally, I’m as suspicious as he is of the Mail’s newfound support for freedom of speech on university campuses. The most important political book of the year and a fascinating must-read for anyone who cares about Britain.
