Quentin Letts has never been one to shrink away from offering an opinion in his various newspaper columns over the years and here we have a collection of his journalistic musings. No one is a safe target and his frustration, anger and wry humour all come to the fore in this entertaining read. 

Letts Rip Synopsis

Throughout the New Labour years - that decade of deceit, that era of wretched wriggle - the Daily Mail 's Quentin Letts has maintained a lonely, vehement vigil. Like a lone clay pigeon shot squinting through his sights at a sky black with targets, he has fired his daily bullets at the poseurs and pooh-bahs of British public life. John Prescott?Bang! Alan Sugar? Bang Bang! Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman, and the Commons Speaker Letts nicknamed 'Gorbals Mick'? Bullseyes - every single one. In this collection of anguished and often snortingly funny political sketches and journalism, Letts lets off more steam than a Chinese laundry. The modern Establishment won't like it. They tried to gag him. Smear him. Even tried to get him fired. Quentin Letts: The man they could not silence. As his wife will be the first to tell you.
