ineuality t the heart of modern Britain This is seuel to his earlier book What Carve Up which was part satire of Thatcherite values The Twenty-Fifth Amendment: Its Complete History and Applications, Third Edition and part homage to 50snd 60s British film comedies In the earlier book the Winshaw family caricatured many of the venal spects of the society of the day in the same way s the D Ascoynes
