Broonland: The Last Days of Gordon Brown

by Christopher Harvie - £8.99  Verso Books (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844674398 | ISBN 10: 1844674398

Broonland is a scathing and witty indictment of the architect of New Labour, Gordon Brown. Chris Harvie shows how Gordon Brown came to preside over a bankrupt county pn the brink of economic and political breakdown. Taking us on a tour of Britain over the last decade, he explores the ever-widening disparity between rich and poor, and how manufacturing was replaced by “retail, entertainment and recreation” — otherwise known as shopping, gambling and drinking.
 
Looking at how a deregulated, casino economy veered wildly out of control, and how Britain’s public utilities and industries wre privatized and sold off to the highest bidder, Broonland is both an essential anatomy of New Labour’s bankrupt policies and a caustic portrait of a decade that went from boom to bust.
