Are you one of the growing number of disaffected voters who feel that Britain's main political parties as becoming increasingly alike, whilst failing to sort out the nation's deep-seated social and financial problems? Do you think there might be a better way of constructing a modern political party fit for purpose? Laying a Ghost to Rest charts the evolution - or lack thereof - of British politics since the end of World War II, highlighting what's failed and what still needs desperately to be improved upon. Despite numerous changes in government, our political endgame hasn't really moved on since the 1980s. Terry Randall identifies an acceptance from across the political spectrum - tacit or overt - of Thatcherite ideals as being the root cause of this stagnation. The result is a 'them versus us' scenario in which politicos and the public have become divorced from one another. But there is a new way forward, which Randall invites us to consider, by learning from - and breaking with - the past.
