I am someone who despairs at politics or even runs away screaming if ever a political debate is in the offing. There's a lot that is valuable here: the identification of misaligned incentives, the descriptions of Westminster procedure, highlighting the positive role of select committees and, more surprisingly, the Lords. to key figures in Whitehall, Westminster and Fleet Street, Ian Dunt provides exactly what people in power have always tried to a full description of the mechanisms of British government.
