From the bestselling authors of Cameron's Coup comes a devastating critique of our current government.

'Now, post Brexit, we need strong, generous and effective government more than ever. Here's how to remake public confidence in the state.'

Polly Toynbee and David Walker take us on a vivid journey into the public services on which we all depend, rich as well as poor - talking to its people, assessing their work and weighing up its cost, effectiveness and value. We're ageing. We're divided as never before. We lack houses. The market isn't going to provide health, schools, police, research, welfare, flood protection, care in old age or the grants, rules and transfers that hold the country together.

As the UK faces its uncertain future, this book spells out how much we need a functioning public sector. And how it must be paid for.
