Littlejohn's House of Fun Summary

Littlejohn's House of Fun: Thirteen Years of (Labour) Madness by Richard Littlejohn

Following his "Sunday Times" Number 1 bestseller, "Littlejohn's Britain", the "Daily Mail"'s most successful columnist delivers the coup de grace to New Labour, as the nation prepares to vote them out of office. He is not only tough on Brown and the causes of Brown, but devastatingly funny about 'Elf and Safety', 'Yuman Rights', the Surveillance Society and all the bureaucratic absurdities that make modern life worse than anything George Orwell ever imagined. 'Littlejohn has been ...a vivid exponent of a great British columnar style that stretches back five centuries or more. He's a distant, bastard cousin of Thomas Nash, Daniel Defoe and Alexander Pope. Cassandra and Bernard Levin might justly buy him a pint in the Chesire Cheese. Like or loathe him, he's the real, talented deal' - "Observer".

Littlejohn's House of Fun Reviews

"If you prize free expression, this book is essential reading. I was unable to find fault with a single sentiment" -- Roger Lewis Daily Telegraph 20100403 "Fizzing with outrage, brilliantly scathing, laugh-out-loud hilarious" Daily Mail

About Richard Littlejohn

Richard Littlejohn is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, and author of two best-selling books. He has written for London's Evening Standard and Punch and is still a contributor to the Spectator. His twice-weekly columns in the Daily Mail and the Sun earned him a place in the inaugural Newspaper Hall of Fame as one of the most influential journalists of the past 40 years. He has been Fleet Street's Columnist of the Year and was named Irritant of the Year by the BBC's What The Papers Say awards for his unrivalled ability to get up the noses of the Establishment. His extensive radio and television work has brought him both a Sony award and a Silver Rose of Montreux. Littlejohn's satirical novel To Hell In A Handcart was the fastest-selling fiction paperback on its release in 2001. His highly acclaimed non-fiction book You Couldn't Make It Up skewered John Major's Conservative government - much the same as the No. 1 bestselling Littlejohn's Britain did for the Blair years.
