Books in 100: The Future of British Politics

If a book is titled The Future of British Politics, you’d expect some answers or analysis. However, comedian Frankie Boyle provides only rants and jokes.

In his short book, Boyle explores British nationalism, the development of technology, and internationalism.

Boyle may possess some historical and political knowledge that would, in normal circumstances, provide the basis of a solid theoretical piece. However, Boyle’s informal tone is too dominant.

Aside from making some pretty outlandish statements about, for instance, the EU and the Labour Party, Boyle’s jokes aren’t too bad, just somewhat bland.

Overall, this feels more like a sloppy pub conversation than political theory.
