About The Book

The Sunday Times bestseller

In 2020 the United Kingdom reached a bewildering milestone: ten successive years of Conservative rule. In that decade there were three prime ministers, each in turn described as the worst leader we ever had; ministerial resignations by the hundred; and an unrelenting stream of ineffectual, divisive bum-slurry oozing from 10 Downing Street.

The Decade in Tory is an inglorious, rollicking and entirely true account of ten years of demonstrable lies, relentless incompetence, serial corruption, abuse of power, dereliction of duty and hundreds of thousands of avoidable deaths. With his signature scathing wit, Russell Jones breaks down the government’s interminable failures year by year, covering everything from David Cameron’s pledge to tackle inequality – which reduced UK life expectancy for the first time since 1841 – through to Boris Johnson’s calamitous response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will leave you gasping and wondering: how could things get any worse?

‘Substantial, meticulous, depressing, hilarious, rude … like flipping through a grotesque highlights album of the country’s downfall’ Dominic Minghella, director of #takebackBritain

A wickedly funny, furious, fast-paced romp through a decade of governmental failures
