About this book
A biting critique of the British Establishment and a passionate plea for democracy from the author of the acclaimed "Chavs". Jones is a prominent political voice in the UK as a weekly columnist for the "Guardian" and having appeared on "Question Time" and "Newsnight".
Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. Exposing the revolving doors that link these worlds, and the vested interests that bind them together, the author shows how, in claiming to work on our behalf, those at the top are doing precisely the opposite.
