About this deal

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. Over ten chapters, each focusing on a particular person complicit in the downfall, James O'Brien reveals how a select few have conspired - sometimes by incompetence, sometimes by design - to bring Britain to its knees.

Personally, I’m as suspicious as he is of the Mail’s newfound support for freedom of speech on university campuses. A critic from the right who picks a fight with How They Broke Britain may be dismissed by O’Brien as just another hateful ideologue or client journalist, any review further evidence of the incestuous, corrupt and heinously biased world he works so hard to decry. Our politicians seem most interested in their own careers, and much of the media only make things worse.

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. 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. A damning indictment of the British media/politics revolving-door and the contemptibility of its inhabitants, interwoven with tasteful satire which offers much-needed comic relief in an otherwise bleak assessment of. 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. 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.

His daily current affairs programme on LBC is the most popular talk show on commercial radio with over 1. 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. Perhaps the truly guilty are not those who gained positions from which they could do such harm - proroguing Parliament and lying to the sovereign for example - but the backbench MPs who thoroughly understood that their leaders were unfit for high office, but stuck by them, trooped through the division lobbies, hoping to curry favour and preferment.Even as he gags, no one’s going to ask him any awkward questions about recent events at the Cenotaph.
