A Farewell to Calm: The New Normal Survival Guide by John Crace

A Farewell to Calm CoverInfectiously entertaining political satire, from the author of Decline and Fail and I, Maybot.

It’s becoming easier and easier to predict government policy.

Just listen to what the prime minister says in the morning and the opposite is likely to be true come the middle of the afternoon.

Throughout another year of Westminster bluster and bedlam, John Crace’s gloriously acerbic political sketches have provided a much-needed injection of humour.

Here, Crace introduces an infectiously funny selection of his finest pieces, from a summer of U-turns to Christmas calamities, Brexit blithering to lockdownlifting.

Led by Boris’s pound-shop Churchill tribute act, and starring everyone’s least favourite pantomime villains, the end result is a brilliantly entertaining chronicle of another tumultuous year on these benighted islands.
