X Marks the Box : How to Make Politics Work for You Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Politics sets the agenda. Climate change, education, crime, housing - these are political issues, but for many, party politics is still a turn-off.

Daniel Blythe negotiates the political maze from the citizen's point of view.

Why should we vote? What do politicians do and why does it make a difference?

Are you a Diehard, a Bloody-Noser or a Tactical? What can your MP do for you? And just why do they avoid answering direct questions?

Along the way, we examine the most fun general elections and the under-rated politicians; the sauciest scandals and the bizarre sexiest MP polls; the biggest political victories, the U-turns and betrayals; the issues on the street, the part played by your choice of newspaper and what manifestos really mean; how to make your vote count, how to protest, and why you should care about by-elections.Whether you are disenchanted or a ballot-box regular, an activist or a floating voter, this is a book to amuse, inform and entertain.

Irreverent, topical, skeptical and packed with useful facts and trivia, "X Marks The Box" takes you on a journey through apathy to activism - and everything in between.
