Read & Download Who Governs Britain?
Widely dispersed both inside and outside the UK but Westminster politicians still talk the language of Attlee and Churchill How exactly has the British system changed Where does power now lie In Who Governs Britain King offers the first assessment in many years of Britain's governing arrangements as a whole providing much needed context for the upcoming electi This book is not as anti establishment as I had hoped for which might give a hint as to why I sought it out On page 18 Aneuring Bevan is uoted as having said No amount of cajolery and no attempts at ethical or social seducation can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin Now these sentiments mirror my own but I find myself at odds with not Tory s but Globalists from Thatcher through Blair and into the modern Conservative epoch we the people are at war with the pseudo conservativesGlobalists in my opinion This is why I read this book to gain insight into a power structure which is not thoroughly examined in the newspapers nor terrestrial televisionThere is a very very good chapter in the book on the role mainstream newspapers particularly those run by the deviant Rupert Murdoch have played in shaping the political climate It is not that the news empires fear the change of government rather the government that fears the powers of the media uite chilling when you see it in its entiretyAlso I found the chapter on judges and the judicial system revealing just how much power has transferred from the ministers and MP s to the judicial especially given that our own Independence referendum was almost affected disproportionately by the judicial in spite of a democratic outcomeIn conclusion I embarked on the reading of this book with half an idea that the governance of Britain is hamstrung by bureaucracy by the ride of the managerial class You only have to look as I do with disgust and disdain at the antics in Parliament and Prime Ministers uestion time to understand how obnoxious and unrepresentative many of these buffoons are The book is concise easy to read and informative
