Richard Littlejohn is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, and author of two best-selling books. He has written for London's Evening Standard and Punch and is still a contributor to the Spectator. His twice-weekly columns in the Daily Mail and the Sun earned him a place in the inaugural Newspaper Hall of Fame as one of the most influential journalists of the past 40 years. He has been Fleet Street's Columnist of the Year and was named Irritant of the Year by the BBC's What The Papers Say awards for his unrivalled ability to get up the noses of the Establishment. His extensive radio and television work has brought him both a Sony award and a Silver Rose of Montreux. Littlejohn's satirical novel To Hell In A Handcart was the fastest-selling fiction paperback on its release in 2001. His highly acclaimed non-fiction book You Couldn't Make It Up skewered John Major's Conservative government - much the same as Littlejohn's Britain does for the Blair years.Review:
"Savage, hilarious - a fantastic read. Littlejohn slaughters more sacred cows than a foot and mouth epidemic. He makes you laugh out loud and drives you incandescent with rage at what the Blair years have done to Britain." -- Jeremy Clarkson "Britain...is on the downward slide...Our only remaining option is to roll our eyes and laugh darkly. Buty this wise, funny, angry book and that's exactly what you'll do" * Mail on Sunday * "It's endless, effervescent and irreverent." * Observer * "An articulate and searing criticism of the past ten years ... Littlejohn is the best columnist this country has seen since Bernard Levin." -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail *
