Throughout the New Labour years - that decade of deceit, that era of wretched wriggle - the "Daily Mail"'s Quentin Letts has maintained a lonely, vehement vigil. Like a lone clay pigeon shot squinting through his sights at a sky black with targets, he has fired his daily bullets at the poseurs and pooh-bahs of British public life. John Prescott?Bang! Alan Sugar? Bang Bang! Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman, and the Commons Speaker Letts nicknamed 'Gorbals Mick'? Bullseyes - every single one. In this collection of anguished and often snortingly funny political sketches and journalism, Letts lets off more steam than a Chinese laundry. The modern Establishment won't like it. They tried to gag him. Smear him. Even tried to get him fired. Quentin Letts: The man they could not silence. As his wife will be the first to tell you. Praise for Quentin's previous books: 'I salute Mr Letts' one-man stand against the ugly and brainless Bog-Folk' - "Daily Mail". '[Quentin Letts] discharges his duty with flair and tracer precision...an angry book, beautifully written' - "The Spectator".
