A Quiet Word: Lobbying, Crony Capitalism and Broken Politics in Britain

by Tamasin Cave and Andy Rowell - £10.99  Vintage (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099578314 | ISBN 10: 009957831x

Q. Whatís worth £2,000,000,000, answers to no-one and operates out of public sight?
A. Britainís influence industry
The corporate takeover of democracy is no conspiracy theory Ė itís happening, and it affects every aspect of our lives: the food we eat, the places we live, the temperature of our planet, how we spend our money and how our money is spent for us. And much more.
A Quiet Word shows just how effectively the voice of public interest is being drowned out by the word in the ear from the professional persuaders of the lobbying industry. And if youíve never heard about them, thatís because the most effective lobbying goes unnoticed.
A Quiet Word shines the brightest of lights into one of the darkest and least-understood corners of our political culture. It is essential, urgent, authoritative reading for anyone interested in our democracy and where this country is heading.
And by showing how influence is constructed, it puts power back in your hands.
