Publisher's Summary

A short, sharp intervention in the crucial debate about the future of democracy, which has been brought to a head by events from Brexit to the Trump phenomenon.

In response to the emerging 'I'm a democrat, but...' consensus, this audiobook will argue for a forthright defence of democracy against its enemies and critics, old and new. As part of that argument, it will aim to show that the problem has not been too much democracy but too little - the absence of real political choices about the future that has stoked the popular mood of antipolitics.

What the Critics Say

"Superb.... This is a first-rate polemic and the most important political book of the year so far." (Rod Liddle)
"This is an important book, and couldn't be more timely. It's strong-minded, unafraid, determined to knock down all the various specious arguments against free speech, unapologetic about insisting on the value of free expression, and terrifically well argued. In these weak-minded times it's good to have so uncompromising a defence." (Salman Rushdie)
"What this book does tremendously is pull off the neat trick of summing up just what the hell is going on out there on the great frontiers of speech, offence, liberty and people shouting at each other." (The Times)

    "join the club"

    More and more people of all political persuasions are recognising how the elite with the help of controlled media and useful idiots on the left are chipping away at democracy. the election of the establishment puppet Macron in France. portrayed by the media as a rebel outsider, is the latest example of the elite controlling democracy. wake up!

    "Must read for freedom lovers."

    Excellent review of democracy and how we are losing it. Time for action to take it back.
