About this deal

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. All 10 more than deserve his ire, and ours; there seems little point in my going over their entitlement and casual destruction here. Every Chapter is a revelation - From the first line of the Introduction- you get hooked and want to read more. 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.

Our politicians seem most interested in their own careers, and much of the media only make things worse. 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.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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. 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. His daily current affairs programme on LBC is the most popular talk show on commercial radio with over 1.

His forensic approach is joined by unerring aim - he does more than point the finger, he delivers a rapier thrust to the vital organs of those who have done the damage. View image in fullscreen James O’Brien: ‘relies almost entirely for his text on the hard labour – the investigations, and the thinking – of others’. 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.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. The damage is partly caused by those who don't pay attention, but turn out to vote once every 4 or 5 years, giving an ego boost to charlatans and crooks who pretend to have our interests at heart. No, what I mean is that some books, at least in the current landscape, are hard to criticise; to argue with them is to incorporate yourself, however unwittingly, into the framework they purport to stand against. Nigel Farage, the show’s latest political signing, may well end up having to eat more than his share of kangaroo anuses.

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. The most important political book of the year and a fascinating must-read for anyone who cares about Britain. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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.

Even as he gags, no one’s going to ask him any awkward questions about recent events at the Cenotaph.

million weekly listeners and his first book, How To Be Right , was a Sunday Times bestseller, which won the Parliamentary Book Award for Best Political Book by a non-politician. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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). Has been speaking for a long time and now it's on a hard copy for generations to come - to readEVERY BRIT SHOULD PLEASE READ THIS BOOK AND ANYONE WHO LOVES BRITAIN.
