Devastating but hopeful critique of the state of the nation. The New Few, by Ferdinand Mount

Certainly the clearest analysis of the state of Britain in the wake of the financial collapse. This elegant tract by a leading conservative thinker avoids the easy political ploy of blaming Gordon Brown for a meltdown caused mainly by irresponsible and, in retrospect, idiotic business practices. It is witty, passionate and informative and will provoke thought and perhaps will stiffen the spines of our leading politicians so that they take action before the lobbiests have watered down all attempts to reform the system.
