Want to know more about history and politics? Then you should probably go find a proper book. Fancy a laugh at some smutty jokes? Then go read Viz. But if you fancy a combination of the two, this is the book for you.
In Off The Record, bitter and twisted leftie news reporter Jonathan Pie picks ten of the world's worst wankers and tears them apart. Here you'll find the answers to some difficult questions. Was Blair just a Tory in disguise? Did Cameron really have sexual relations with that pig? Just how the fuck did we end up with President Donald Trump?
It's the ultimate guide to political arseholery. With extra swearing.
Before I start, if you're not aware of Jonathan Pie – he's a very shouty, sweary, ranty man:
And the book is very much in the same vein of shouty, sweary, ranty, and downright pissed off view from the aforementioned Mr Pie. If the YouTube clip causes a reaction similar to nails being scrapped down a blackboard – then this probably isn't for you. However, if you want political revue, past and present, served in a bowl of vitriol with a side comedic ire – then I can wholeheartedly recommend Jonathon Pie: Off the Record.
Mr Pie pulls no punches in this short and fast read. Tackled in ten chapters, perfect to dip in and out of, Mr Pie's contemptuous case studies include: Henry VIII, Adolf Hitler, David Cameron, Margaret Thatcher, Donald Trump, Rupert Murdoch (real name: Keith), Tony Blair, and Teresa May.
Very funny - if you can handle, and even enjoy - the shouty and sweary delivery.
