Code: 9781847947932
2016 was not only the year of Brexit, the most important and contentious political event in Britain for decades. It was also the year of Trump and a tempestuous US presidential campaign, the European migrant crisis, NHS junior doctors strikes, an ongoing terror threat from ISIS in Europe, turmoil in the Labour party, the Rio Olympics, the ascension to power of Theresa May and the rise (and fall, and rise) of Boris Johnson. In Britains Best Political Cartoons 2016, all these news events and many more receive the satirical treatment of our finest cartoonists. This result is a hilarious, razor-sharp and essential companion to a momentous and tumultuous year.

Prime Minister Corbyn

Code: 9781785900457
Have you ever wondered what would have happened if... Britain had lost the Falklands War? Scotland had voted Yes in 2014? German reunification had never happened? The Conservatives had won an overall majority in 2010? Lyndon Johnson had been shot down in 1942? David Miliband had beaten Ed Miliband to the Labour leadership? Lynton Crosby had changed sides in 2015? or Boris Johnson had become Prime Minister after the European referendum? Welcome to the world of political counterfactuals, where scholarly analyses of possibilities and causalities take their place beside enthralling fictional accounts of alternate political histories - all guaranteed to enlighten and entertain (or make you shudder at the thought). From a permanent union between France and the UK in 1940, to a 'Yes' vote in the Scottish independence referendum of 2014, to Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister in 2020, get ready to see a century of political history turned on its head with twenty-three expert examinations of things that never happened (or likely never will) - but easily could have if events had so conspired...

Scorn

Code: 9781781257296
There's no pleasure like a perfectly-turned put-down (when it's directed at somebody else, of course) but Matthew Parris's Scorn is sharply different from the standard collections. Here are the funniest, sharpest, rudest and most devastating insults in history, from ancient Roman graffiti to the battlefields of Twitter. Drawing on bile from such masters as Dorothy Parker, Elizabeth I, Donald Trump, Groucho Marx, Princess Anne, Winston Churchill, Nigel Farage, Mae West and Alastair Campbell - which form an exchange between voices down the ages - Scorn shows that abuse can be an art form. This collection includes extended literary invective as well as short verbal shin-kicks. Encompassing literature, art, politics, showbiz, marriage, gender, nationality and religion, Matthew Parris's sublime collection is the perfect companion for the festive season, whether you're searching for the perfect elegant riposte, the rudest polite letter ever written, or a brutal verbal sledgehammer.

The Little Red Book of Corbyn Jokes - putting the 'ha' into the hard left. A socialist lion walked into a bar. The barman said, 'What's the big Clause Four?'
