Prominent English social critic Peter Hitchens writes of the period between the death of Winston Churchill and the funeral of Princess Diana, a time he believes has seen disastrous changes in English life. The Abolition of Britain is bitingly witty and fiercely argued, yet also filled with somber appreciation for what the idea of England has always meant to the West and to the world.

Always been a fan of Peter Hitchens and very much agreed with nearly every column he has wrote in a newspaper and every opinion he has every voiced on television but didn't really enjoy this. Was basically hours upon hours of him ranting complaining about how literally everything imaginable has changed for the worse without even touching upon how we have seen various diseases all but eradicated and running water and broadband extended to every corner of this nation.
