I finished reading The Great European Rip-off by David Craig and Matthew Elliot yesterday. And I have to say it's one of the best books on modern politics I have read.
Probably the best thing about the book is that it's balanced. While its aim is to reveal EU waste and corruption it does point out where the EU has been successful. For example—in terms of spreading peace, democracy and stability.
The authors also layout a set of proposals to reform the EU. Rather than just concluding that the EU should be scrapped.
However it is difficult for the authors to balance the good and bad considering the amount of waste and corruption present in the EU.
Thanks to the fact that publishers are waking up to the influence of blogs (ha!), your humble Devil was contacted by Random House and is happy to be able to offer readers a big chunk off the retail price of £8.99. How?
