What's Going On?: The Meanderings of a Comic Mind in Confusion

Mark Steel


comic Mark metal has spent such a lot of his lifestyles a dedicated, signed-up member of the Socialist staff occasion. The Labour get together coming to energy in 1997 might have been the beginning of a brand new political sunrise for Mark and for Britain. yet as an alternative, giant enterprise and war-mongering thrived lower than New Labour, and in lots of methods the operating category appeared to develop into extra marginalised. Petty bickering and in-fighting racked the SWP, numbers faded horribly, socialism turned a grimy notice and Mark metal started to imagine the unthinkable . . . do i actually are looking to belong to this rabble anymore?

At an identical time, coming into his forties, Mark's own lifestyles started to crumble. Spending many sleepless nights at the couch, looking at inane cable television into the early hours of the morning, Mark requested himself the query, What goes On? In a booklet that is going correct to the center of england and the issues it suffers this day, Mark wonders why over 1000000 humans marching in London couldn't cease the warfare in Iraq, why supermarkets are killing the small city centres of england and why George Galloway went on big name massive Brother destroying any political credibility he can have had within the blink of a cat's eye. Bitingly humorous, poignant, sharply saw and extremely a lot of the instant, this can be Mark metal at his brilliantly clever top.
