My new book Britain Explained is published tomorrow by John Harper Publishing (see foot). Completed on the eve of the general election it is an up to date guide to the UK on the eve of Brexit. The defining institutions of the UK are identified and dispassionately probed: what are the Westminster System, the BBC, the NHS or the Arts Council? How do they shape the shifting national identities of the UK.
This is no patriotic puff. The divisions of this ‘United’ Kingdom are laid bare, be they political, national, social or cultural. They aren’t just between the nations but within them: city and country, North and South, metropolitan and excluded.
