Our world has gone mad –
politically and otherwise
But why and how did it come to this?
A wry look at the state of the UK (and beyond), focusing on the appalling standards of governance and leadership we see today, and the ineffectiveness of our myriad institutions. Starting with a review of the 2016 referendum and its aftermath, the author moves on to consider the wider problems we are facing. This includes a close look at the work of our regulatory bodies, who have become a billion pound industry covering everything from regulation of the press to the funding of political parties, and communications to the supply of gas and electricity.
The book also considers the dreadful state of the criminal justice system; broadcasting, and the decline of the BBC, as well as asking why overseas aid is frequently sent to undeserving places and spent unwisely in places that need help.
This is a revealing investigation into the sheer incompetence of the state we are currently in, and the story of how we got here.
