9780091959012: Get it Together: Why We Deserve Better Politics

A rousing call to arms for a fairer society from the well-loved Guardian political journalist Zoe Williams.
     Whether we have children or not we all want the future to be fairer and happier; and Zoe Williams believes that we need to make that happen collectively. Get It Together is a rousing call to arms for us all to play our part in creating a more equal society. Zoe believes that it's not enough to sit back and watch as our NHS slides away from us; as the young and low earners are forced out of London; as hundreds of thousands of people nationally drift into poverty; as education becomes increasingly divided and as the wealthiest five people in Britain earn more than the poorest 20%.
     Zoe will address key questions including: has the NHS had its day; has an immigrant stolen your job; have you ever wondered why you can't afford a house; and who got us into this mess anyway? She will then offer up, in answer, a combination of fact, opinion and debate that will be as inspiring as it is important.
     Zoe Williams brings together here all the arguments that occupy the current political landscape and shows us that on all levels, it's lunacy to be anything other than left-wing unless you're actually already an oligarch. She offers us the debate in a truly entertaining way -- she's pacey, conversational and funny.

About the Author:

ZOE WILLIAMS writes comment pieces, interviews and reviews. She is best known as a Guardian columnist, but her work has also appeared in the Spectator, NOW magazine, the New Statesman and the Evening Standard. She lives in London with her partner and two children.

Review:

"There are lots of good ideas in this well-researched book. It's well-written, with strong anecdotes [and] some blisteringly damning lines ... it's hard not to be stirred by Williams's rallying cry." Standard "A passionate polemic - the wit, fluency and sheer polemical brio of her prose belies her mastery of the fine detail of the deals that the state has struck with companies in the private sector over the past decade and a half." Guardian "Thoroughly researched and deal[s] well with complexity" Big Issue North "I loved it: politics explained in a funny, clever and insightful way" -- Bridget Christie Guardian, Books of the Year
