Summary
Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse, which we published back in 2014, must have really made people think. Because everything's got worse. We've gone from UKIP to Brexit, from horse lasagne to fatbergs, from big society to food banks. The only possible way to cheer up in 2019 is to dive into David Mitchell's terrifically clever and witty analysis of the farce of recent years. Here he takes on the utter nonsense rained down on us from corporate PRs, governments in the thrall of lobbyists, customers being preyed upon by algorithm-wielding corporations, evil interest groups tricking electors with targeted lies, flat-earthers and Eton boys. No other writer is a match for the dumbfounding times we live in
