A hilarious collection of articles from the Blair era by Britain’s leading humorous satirist. The parody, whimsy and wit not only capture the essence of life under New Labour, but go far deeper into Tony’s Britain than mere political satire could.

Craig Brown was born in 1957 and has been a journalist for almost 30 years. He has been the only recipient of the What the Papers Say General Pleasure award in the past 40 years. He presently writes the Way of the World column in the Daily Telegraph, the main book review in the Mail on Sunday and the parodic diary in Private Eye. His previous books include This is Craig Brown, The Marsh Marlowe Letters, The Little Book of Chaos and 1966 and All That. He divides his time between Swindon and Ipswich. His fans are wide-ranging from Stephen Fry ('The wittiest writer in Britain today') to Elton John ('We love Craig Brown') and from John Mortimer ('Britain's greatest parodist') to Rory Bremner ('Among the finest literary parody we have'). He was recently described by Elaine Showalter in the Guardian as ('the greatest satirist since Max Beerbohm').Review:
“Nobody does prose parody and media satire better.”
