Not in My Name: A Compendium of Modern Hypocrisy (Google eBook)
It is a great and glorious tradition the world over - to vehemently state one thing and then do the exact opposite. Royals are doing it, reformed smokers are doing it, and politicians are virtually synonymous with it. Welcome to the heyday of hypocrisy.
From the Everyday Hypocrites (cyclists, white hip-hop fans, reality television-haters) to the truly pungent Stinking Hypocrites (chav-haters, green campaigners and anti-Americans), Julie Burchill and Chas Newkey-Burden pull no punches in their witty harangue of those who shamelessly say one thing and do another.
Features the modern hypocrite's favourite holiday destinations, sporting heroes and the hilarious Hypocrites' Ultimate Weekend.
