What is politics? How does parliament work? Is the great British democracy even a true democracy? And why are politicians such massive liars? This audiobook provides the information that teenagers really want - and need - to know. Complete with equally irreverent footnotes and a 'get involved' section with a list of websites and further reading, this audiobook is essential for a generation disillusioned by modern politics. THIS AUDIOBOOK CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND/OR ADULT THEMES.
