A quiet word: lobbying, crony capitalism and broken politics in Britain

A quiet word: lobbying, crony capitalism and broken politics in Britain

Cave, Tamasin, author; Rowell, Andrew, 1965- author

When protesters pitched their tents at St Paul's Cathedral in October 2011, they demanded one thing: to be heard. The financial sector they oppose doesn't have to sit for weeks under canvas, with banners waving, in order to get the ear of government. It peddles its influence quietly, behind closed doors with friends and former colleagues in government, which it looks after with fine dining, direct funding and promises of jobs in retirement. This book is an explosive and revelatory account about the British lobbying industry and how it affects us all at every level of our lives
