Polly Toynbee and David Walker

8 Feb 2017

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

Polly Toynbee and David Walker take us on a vivid journey into the public services on which we all depend, talking to people, assessing their work and weighing up the cost, effectiveness and value. 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.
