From the incoherent riots of a disaffected youth to Russell Brand’s call to reject the ballot box, Britain has never been so jaded.

Dis-empowered, disillusioned with the braying yobbery of Westminster’s ‘elite’, drained by the unpunished rate rigging and tax maneuvering of banking and big business, we have hit a new low in political engagement. Countless articles decry our apathy, our lack of motivation, our disinterest in political affairs. Yet the recent Scottish referendum showed the essential falsehood at the heart of this claim.

The truth is that we’re far from apathetic – we’re just frustrated by the failure of our representatives to do their job. In this timely and innovative call to arms, Paul Twivy argues that this can be fixed – and the solution is not to reject voting. Rather, we need a drastic overhaul of our political system at every level, forging a new relationship between the people, the state and the corporate world.

Radical, entertaining and thought-provoking, Be Your Own Politician maintains that a newly energized, politically engaged society really is ours for the taking – and shows us how to claim it.
