Nice Work If You Can Get It

Political journalist Peter Oborne examines the emergence of a new political class that appears to pursue its own interests above that of the country and the British people.

Oborne investigates if MPs and politicians in this class are hiding behind the laws they create and how they have succeeded in neutering the watchdogs set up to monitor their behaviour. Is the real division in British politics not between rival political parties but between an arrogant and self-interested political class and ordinary voters?

Oborne asks if this self interest and secrecy is damaging the very heart of our democracy.

    Wow. If this is the height of corruption in the U.K. then I am impressed. Americans (myself included) would hardly bat and eye at this. I wonder how difficult it is to immigrate to the U.K.?
