About the book:

While the rest of the media lounge in the warm glow of New Labours rosy dawn, one journalist in Britain has been a consistently sharp and witty scourge of Tony Blair and his bandwagon babes. Step forward Nick Cohen, denizen of the Observer newspapers celebrated Hold on a Minute column and a writer who has regularly identified Labours Third Way as the mid-point between truth and lies, decency and hypocrisy, honesty and corruption. Whether he is tearing into Labours plans to privatize the prison system and introduce curfews for teenagers, or detailing the governments cozying up to Rupert Murdoch and the hot money traders in the City, Cohen maintains a peerless grasp on the power that flows from fusing invective with scrupulous investigation. Even Downing Street Policy Advisor Andrew Adonis was forced to concede that no one is better at getting under the Governments skin. A coruscating barrage of dispatches from his snipers post, Cruel Britannia celebrates Cohens lonely stand. It will revivify the disillusioned who anticipated something better from Labours ascent and fortify those on the left who expected little and received precisely that.
