The Feckin' Book of Bankers, Builders, Blaggers and Bowsies That Banjaxed the Nation

by Colin Murphy and Donal O'Dea
£7.50   hardback  O'Brien Press Ltd (2010)

The Feckin If you thought ‘Double-Dip’ was a move in dancing, and ‘Downsizing’ was losing the few extra pounds you’d put on after the Christmas, you haven’t been keeping up with the jargon and double-speak that covers up the parlous state of the country and the crafty euphemisms used by politicians, bankers, employers and other practitioners of Bertienomics to disguise the fact that you’re out on your ear.
From Affluenza to Zombie Banks, via Bailouts, Bonuses, Green Shoots, Ghost Estates, Light Touch Regulation, this book casts a hilarious light on a subject that you never thought would make you laugh – the Recession and all that goes with it. Peppered with ‘Bullshit Boxes’ containing the ‘I wish I hadn’t Said That’ wisdom of assorted economists, politicians, heads of banks and other geniuses who never saw it coming, and illustrated with outrageously funny cartoons, this is the only Depression-free book on the Recession.
