Available in Stock
Over recent decades, British governments of all parties have committed spectacular errors of judgement: the Poll Tax, the Millennium Dome, Blair's failed IT project for the NHS, the Assets Recovery Agency that cost more to run than it ever clawed back from organized crime... The list is ever growing. Informed by years of research and interviews with cabinet ministers and senior civil servants, this savvy, ironic and razor-sharp book explains why politicians are so prone to bungling at our expense.
