Nick Cohen explores the feeling of angry impotence which has swept modern Britain during the Labour administration. The text shifts focus away from Westminster and into the more diverse and unexpected territories of New Labour influence, from America to India. Based on original research and interviews - and an instinct for stories other journalists ignore - this book combines contemporary history with satire and polemic.

Review:

A devastating assault on New Labour ... Cohen's uninhibited onslaught on everyone around him is hugely enjoyable. -- Roy Hattersley, Observer, September 2003

A gut-wrenching read for all of us who have remained engaged with the Götterdämmerung of Blair's premiership. -- Will Self, New Statesman, September 2003

Cohen's ridicule of New Labour is masterly. -- Michael Portillo, The Times, September 2003

I commend Pretty Straight Guys ... well-researched, intelligent, angry and totally sincere. -- Matthew Parris, Spectator, September 2003

About the Author:
