No one would attack equality, would they? Well, Quentin Letts just might. He's on the rampage again; this time he's gunning for the folk who want to crush individualism in our nation of once indignant eccentrics. For Letts, equality's been defiled by ethnic-grievance gangs and harpies of feminist orthodoxy, by risk-averse jackboots of town-hall bureaucracy with quotas and creeds. He's furious that fair damsel Liberty has been whored by best-practice brigades and by municipal bores insistent that everyone has a prize and no culture dominates. Letts' outrage stalks the glottal-stopping oikishness of our streets, linked, he believes, to modern society's refusal to deplore. For him, the prattishness of Jonathan Ross is part of the mad insistence that vulgarity is valid. Still think equality's such a great thing? You might not after reading this urgent, exasperated, witheringly funny book. '"Praise for 50 People Who Buggered Up Britain" [Quentin Letts] discharges his duty with flair and tracer precision...an angry book, beautifully written' - "The Spectator".
