In this book the author demolishes some of the facile and often completely counter-factual myths that get used over and again to justify the implementation of right-wing economic policies.
If you follow politics at all, or you've ever picked up a tabloid newspaper, you'll be familiar with some of the most egregious examples such as the "Labour caused the financial crisis" lie, the "unemployed are all lazy scroungers" narrative, the "private is always more efficient than public" fallacy and the ludicrous "trickle down" theory of economics.
The problem is that these (often absurdly inaccurate) right-wing fallacies are far more pervasive than most people think. The reason that they are so pervasive is that they are usually based in the form of simplistic justification narratives. This book will open your eyes to some of the biggest fallacies and manipulations used today by the right wing politicians in British politics today.
