Patrick Moore is Britain's most respected and best-loved astronomer.
But under his nom de plume R. T. Fishall, he is also the scourge of bureaucratic incompetence, exposing stupidity wherever he finds it, especially amongst tax inspectors and traffic wardens.
He has previously highlighted official idiocy in Bureaucrats: How to Annoy Them and The Twitmarsh Files.
Now, with his collaborator R. Hugh Hall-Wright, he has brought his expose of humbug in high places right up to date, with examples drawn from all aspects of British life.
Including `political correctness gone mad,' legal lunacy and the blood-boiling insanity of the MPs' expenses scandal, this is the perfect book for anyone who wants proof that the country really is going to the dogs.
