For grumpy old men everywhere: what are the things that have made Britain less great? Outspoken and controversial commentator Duncan Barkes looks at the "dumbing down" of Britain

In this enjoyable diatribe, Duncan Barkes picks over the remnants of a once great nation, and hones in on the issues that he feels have changed Britain for the worse. In this dumbed-down nation, our liberty is constantly threatened by increasing state control. Barkes pulls no punches in putting modern Britain to rights, covering topics that will resonate with readers up and down the UK, including: voter apathy and the pathetic excuses given for not bothering, technology turning all of us into robots and killing conversation, the smoking ban, the demise of the traditional pub, the rise of NIMBYism, people's inability to dress properly and the growth of the "onesie," the death of the real man, CCTV and the gathering of information on us all, and our unhealthy obsession with trash TV. As you've probably worked out for yourself, it is a pretty grumpy book.
