The Triumph of the Political Class


A bit of polemical political reading is in store for those who want to be challenged about the state of the nation's political health. I mentioned in the previous post the right-wing journalist Peter Oborne's Spectator article about the rise of a professional, self-absorbed and narcissistic political class, which he believes has been poisoning British political discourse. Well, his thesis is elaborated in a new book, 'The Triumph of the Political Class', reviewed favourably (here) by the Sunday Times' Simon Jenkins, and clearly well worth a look for anyone who wants a blast of controversial fresh air to blow through their notions of how the British state is working.
