Which fifty people made Britain the wreck she is? From ludicrous propagandist Alastair Campbell to the Luftwaffe's allies, the modernist architects, it's time to name the guilty.

Quentin Letts sharpens his nib and stabs them where they deserve it, from TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh, the dumbed-down buffoon who put the 'h' in Aspidistra, to the perpetrators of the 'Credit Crunch'.

Margaret Thatcher ruptured our national unity. The creators of EastEnders trashed our brand over high tea. Thus, he argues, are the people who made our country the ugly, scheming, cheating, beer-ridden bum of the Western world. Here are the fools and knaves and vulgarians who ripped down our British glories and imposed the tawdry and the trite. In a half century we have gone from end-of-Empire to descent-into-Hell.

“Words cannot concieve a title for this review”

A well-intended gift I quickly had my doubts about this book through my ignorance of not knowing who Quentin Letts was.
I'll grant Letts some credit that it started off slightly amusing but I quickly had to start... More

“Quentin Letts Rip”

This spirited counterblast from the bowels of Middle England will make many a Guardian reader choke on their decaffeinated prune juice come Christmas Day. If, that is, anyone is mischievous enough to buy it for them.... More
