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.

This book will help explain about things that bother you and have concerned us Brits too for so long. 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. The most important political book of the year and a fascinating must-read for anyone who cares about Britain.

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. All 10 more than deserve his ire, and ours; there seems little point in my going over their entitlement and casual destruction here.

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. 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). 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.

Anyone who ever voted for the politicians at the heart of this book, and responsible for the harm done to Britain's reputation, should also take some of the blame. 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. 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. 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.

If ever the fates aligned in Britain’s apparent favour (eg at the Imperial zenith, 100-odd years ago), it now seems to have been our turn for just about everything to tumble the other way (eg J Poo-byn ‘opposing’ various things, yet not The Topic Of The Day in June 2016). Our politicians seem most interested in their own careers, and much of the media only make things worse. 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. Even as he gags, no one’s going to ask him any awkward questions about recent events at the Cenotaph.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. 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. 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. The book is already a bestseller; a recent event promoting it required a venue change, so great was the demand for tickets.
