In his timely and provocative book, The Nanny State Made Me, the popular DJ, presenter and journalist Stuart Maconie, tells the story of Britain’s Welfare State through his own history of growing up as a northern working class boy. What was so bad about properly funded hospitals, decent working conditions and affordable houses? And what was so wrong about student grants, free eye tests and council houses? And where did it all go so wrong? Stuart looks toward Britain’s future, making an emotional case for believing in more than profit and loss; and championing a just, fairer society.
