In an age where more British people believe in aliens than trust our politicians, Dorothy Byrne asks the question: what went wrong and how can our trust in democracy and public life be regained? In this scintillating essay, nothing and no one escapes Byrne's razor-sharp wit as she takes on the politicians avoiding rigorous journalistic scrutiny, explores the pitfalls of impartiality, imagines what Plato might say to Trump - and calls out plenty of sexist bastards along the way. This is a ferocious, frank, and often wildly funny attempt to separate the truth from the lies at a time of national crisis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I HAVE NEVER AGREED WITH ANYONE MORE.
Searing, funny, taking no prisoners about everything from sexism, ageism, menopause, Me Too, the narrow make-up of the media to attacks on democracy. Dorothy Byrne is my new hero. * The Guardian *
YOU SHOULD READ IT NOW. It's utterly brilliant. I want to be exactly like her when I grow up.' * The Economist *
Funny, important and savage about everyone from Corbyn and Johnson to her ridiculous sexist bosses when she started out.'
Furious, funny, opinionated, interesting.
Just brilliant. Every hard-earned word.' * The Guardian *
A masterclass in caustic and at times self-deprecating wit' * The National *
What a privilege for a therapist to be given permission to share such a journey. It provoked so many thoughts and byways of the heart and mind... I loved and admired it.
