Publisher's Summary

In May 2010, British politics entered a revolutionary new era. With the election of the first hung parliament since 1974, Britain found itself in the unfamiliar world of coalition government. Explaining what this all means, this incisive introduction shows us how our politics is changing and why we should care about it. Exploring the structure of British government, "spin", foreign policy, and the fallout from the expenses scandal and the financial crisis, Grayson reveals the complex interactions that determine everything from the taxes we pay to when we put the wheelie bin out.


Audible Editor Reviews

The 2010 British elections, which resulted in a rare hung parliament, serve as a springboard for former liberal democrat candidate Richard S. Grayson’s overview of the machinations of British politics, which seeks to illuminate why such a deep chasm exists between the public and the representatives it elects.
David Thorn’s robust, dignified British accent and buoyant tone breathe life into this penetrating, and at times charmingly witty, look at British domestic policy, past and present, and the evolution of its diverse set of political parties.

A Springboard

A good place to start. Easy to understand, relevant and interesting. I felt that it was fair and objective, not swaying towards any party.
