‘Liddle lured me in with his riotously entertaining take on everything from attitudes towards obesity to what he calls our "respec" culture’ Independent ‘A magnificent torrent of analysis and abuse – 90 per cent brilliant, 10 per cent bonkers … A flaming, bloodthirsty romp, scything through the clichés and lazy thinking of an effete liberal establishment’ Times Higher Education Supplement ‘Filled with his trademark dry and self-hating wit, I would recommend even Rod-sceptics read his book’ New Statesman
