An awful lot has happened since that bright, fateful May morning in 1997 when New Labour swept to power. Things, we were told, Could Only Get Better. Instead, things took a turn for the worse...To console Tony Blair as he embarks on his long, grinning journey into oblivion, Craig Brown has packed a special time-capsule of Britain during the Tony Years: from Cool Britannia to ASBOs and from Posh and Becks to Charles and Camilla, the nation's funniest satirist makes sense - and nonsense - of it all.

Author Biography - Craig Brown
Craig Brown was born in 1957 and has been a journalist for almost 30 years. He has been the only recipient of the What the Papers Say General Pleasure award in the past 40 years. He presently writes the Way of the World column in the Daily Telegraph, the main book review in the Mail on Sunday and the parodic diary in Private Eye. His previous books include This is Craig Brown, The Marsh Marlowe Letters, The Little Book of Chaos and 1966 and All That. He divides his time between Swindon and Ipswich. His fans are wide-ranging from Stephen Fry ('The wittiest writer in Britain today') to Elton John ('We love Craig Brown') and from John Mortimer ('Britain's greatest parodist') to Rory Bremner ('Among the finest literary parody we have'). He was recently described by Elaine Showalter in the Guardian as 'the greatest satirist since Max Beerbohm'.
