About this book
The parliamentary sketch writer and theatre critic for the "Daily Mail" sharpens his nib in this survey of the 50 people he holds responsible for the state of Britain today. His list includes everyone from Alastair Campbell to Alan Titchmarsh, modernist architects to the creators of "EastEnders". For this paperback edition, he has added 5 portraits reflecting our credit crunching times including Peter Mandelson and Sir Callum McCarthy (ex-head of the FSA).
Which 50 people made Britain the wreck she is? From ludicrous propagandist Alastair Campbell to the Luftwaffe's allies and the modernist architects, the author stabs them where they deserve it, from TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh, the dumbed-down buffoon who put the 'h' in Aspidistra, to the perpetrators of the 'Credit Crunch'.
