In 1997, Britain elected a young, charismatic, inspirational leader, and the entire nation was filled with hope. For the next ten years, we suffered the pain of gradual disillusionment as Tony Blair failed to live up to every single one of our expectations.

James Delingpole, one of Britain's most astute political journalists, is here to give you a quick reality bath. He has seen the future--your future--and it doesn't work.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
