John Crace

Depraved New World

Please Hold, the Government Will Be With You Shortly

O brave new world, that has such people in’t. Or not. William Shakespeare clearly had never imagined a clusterf*ck on this scale.

Given the state of the country right now, he would be in need of a long lie down. Another year, another prime minister – how many have we been through now? In the face of all the nonsense that has spewed forth from Westminster over the past two years, John Crace’s brilliantly lacerating political sketches have provided the nation with some desperately needed relief. In Depraved New World, Crace introduces a worryingly funny selection of his finest work, taking in everything from Partygate, BoJo’s farewell and Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng’s disastrous reign to the psychodrama of the Tory leadership contest(s), the return of Rishi, Suella Braverman’s hokey pokey and whatever lies ahead.
