Fantasy Island

Jeff Randall reviews what sounds like an excellent new book today- Fantasy Island by Dan Atkinson and Larry Elliott:

"Read this book and weep. In a week when three London town halls rejected official immigration figures for grossly underestimating the real numbers, Fantasy Island sets out in exquisite detail the lies, damned lies and statistical legerdemain that define Labour in office.

It concludes: "Mr Blair... leaves behind him a seedy dream world mired in debt and bankruptcy, facing a looming crisis of employment and employability".

And as Randall points out, this has been written not by some free markets, small state zealot like Tyler, but by the Grauniad economics editor and another ex-G journo.

A must-read. I've already got my order in at the BOM bookshop.
