...And What Do You Do?: What the royal family don't want you to know [9781785906213]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

The royal family is the original Coronation Street - a long-running soap opera with the occasional real coronation thrown in.

Its members have become celebrities, like upmarket versions of film stars and footballers. But they have also become a byword for arrogance, entitlement, hypocrisy and indifference to the gigantic amount of public money wasted by them.

... And What Do You Do? is a hard-hitting analysis of the royal family, exposing its extravagant use of public money and the highly dubious behaviour of some among its ranks, whilst being critical of the knee-jerk sycophancy shown by the press and politicians.

By turns irreverent and uncompromising, ... And What Do You Do? asks important questions about the future of the world's most famous royal family.


AUTHOR: Norman Baker was the Lib Dem MP for Lewes from 1997 to 2015 and established a reputation as one of the most dogged and persistent parliamentary interrogators the modern House of Commons has known. Following the 2010 general election, he was appointed Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, then Minister of State for Crime Prevention at the Home Office. He is the author of the acclaimed The Strange Death of David Kelly and the political memoir Against the Grain.

    This book is excellent. It's very well written and I enjoy Norman Baker's humour and way of expressing himself. I'm glad he's put some humour into it because the revelations in this book are shocking, even more shocking than I'd expected. I'm really enjoying reading and it's always great to learn new information but I am quite horrified by some of the things I've read in this book. I was born in Britain, have lived here all my life and considered myself reasonably knowledgeable in a low-level sort of way but I had no idea what the royal family get up to. I can only surmise that in humans' typical way of not noticing things any more, once they're well entrenched, some things have come to be considered normal in our country when if we sat down and thought about them, they'd be seen as great injustices. I am not even halfway through and my eyebrows are already embedded in my hairline! A most enjoyable read.
