I have my pre-order in already
Fred Harrison warned the Blair government in 1997 that house prices would peak in 2007. He alerted Gordon Brown - that the housing crash would drive the economy into the depression of 2010. The author delivered the blueprint for avoiding the collapse, and warned the politicians: 'I am your worst nightmare. I know exactly why New Labour will fail, if that is indeed to be the outcome, and I will be obliged to chronicle the developments [so] that the voters will know how to apportion responsibility.' Harrison keeps his promise, explaining how a political class betrayed a nation while enriching itself.
