It was May 1997 and Things Could Only Get Better. It was the new era of Tony's Vision of Britain. But then, things started to go wrong. The "Tony Years" is the hilarious collection of articles from the Blair era by Britain's leading humorous satirist, Craig Brown. The parody, whimsy and wit not only capture the essence of life under New Labour but go far deeper into Tony's Britain than mere political satire could. And, the skewed perspectives are far funnier and closer to home. As well as revisiting his old friends Bel Littlejohn and Wallace Arnold, he introduces us to brand new experts like health guru, Dr. Frank Harbinger and the ruthless, fluffy Controller of BBC H! Brow, Jane Barking. Craig is also at his inimitable best with: Jordan's "Surgical Diary"; Harold Pinter's "Revised Book of English Verse"; "Five Go Morbidly Obese"; "Teach Yourself Cameroon"; Dr. Frank Harbringer's "A-Z of Health Fears"; and "The Institute of the Crashingly Obvious".
