With a sharp eye for the magnificently absurd, Rod Liddle highlights how politically and socially stagnant we have become as a nation.

A searching political reassessment of modern-day Britain ‘The Shit We’re In’ examines the London-centric bias of our ruling elite, who are obsessed with politically correct policies that are at odds with the real needs of the country.

Power has gradually been drained away from our politicians, reducing them to superannuated middle managers. Single issue organizations now exert a largely baleful influence over British social policy, and the population of the country disagrees with the government on a number of important issues. Majority opinion is in favour of reducing immigration and strongly believe that health and safety legislation has gone too far. The majority also believe while everybody should be treated equally there is no room for positive discrimination and affirmative action. Many believe that incomes of some in the country are ludicrously high, out of all proportion to the talent required for the job or the benefits bestowed upon society. They are mistrustful of supermarkets and dislike their towns morphing into identikit replicas of the next town along.

These opinions are understood, at least partly, by our politicians. But there is almost nothing that they can do about them, either from the left or from the right. This is true in terms of multiculturalism, education policy, gender equality, crime, health and safety.

‘The Shit We're In’ demonstrates how we have become imprisoned by various – often antithetically opposed – ideologies that make life exponentially less pleasant for the people of Britain. Once a policy has been deemed necessary, we cannot stop ourselves. We continue and continue to pursue it to ends which become absurd. And we don’t know how to stop.
