The more I read of Owen Jones’ latest book – The Establishment – the quicker I wanted to finish it, as if getting to the final chapter would alleviate the increasing frustration that ate away at me as I finished one damning chapter after another.
It’s a detailed exploration of where power lies in the UK and how it overlaps and corrupts all sectors of our social, economic and political lives. Unearthing how the entire system has become a contradictory unsustainable nightmare, no longer able to keep its own promises. Those at the top seem to take pleasure out of prolonging and extended its injustices, while the majority are left uninformed, distracted and lied to.
If you’re not angry at the current state of things before reading this book, then you will be after.
