‘The inimitable Quentin Letts dares to say in a new book what we’ve all been secretly thinking’ Mail on Sunday

‘Fuming and chuckling by turns’ Daily Telegraph

‘Underneath the jocularity of Letts’s style is a lot of real anger’ Roger Lewis, The Times

Hands, face, space. Curfews. Don’t drink. Bend your knees. Conform, obey, comply – surrender. British life has become infested by bossiness.

Post Lockdown, Quentin Letts storms back with a vituperative howl against the ‘bossocracy’. They tell us what to do, what to say, how to think. Letts gives them a prolonged, resonant raspberry. He names the guilty men and women: Dominic Cummings, Prof Neil Ferguson, that strutting self-polisher Nicola Sturgeon, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Cressida Dick, Michael Gove, even the sainted Sir David Attenborough. Bang! They all take a barrel. And then there’s publicity-prone plonker Matt Hancock posing for photographs while doing his ‘Mr Fit’ press-ups.

Reasonable people have had enough of being bossed about. And when reasonable people stop respecting the law, society has a problem.

‘Brilliantly critical, but always warm-hearted and fair’ Rory Knight Bruce, The Field

Parliamentary sketch-writer Letts gives a short, punchy account of how small-minded officials, virtue-signalling corporations and craven politicians are ruining Britain. His invective will have you fuming and chuckling by turns
