What has the state ever done for you? Everything.
It defends, educates and cares for us, plans and invests. Our peace and productivity depend on it. But public services being broken up, shrunk and denigrated.
Toynbee and Walker travelled round the country listening to nurses, teachers and trading standards officers as well as patients, parents and shoppers. The public protectors and the protected public.
Their story is one of fracture, neglect and sell off. Of a mangled NHS, split up schooling, timid tax offices and police who no longer patrol.
Our post-Brexit wellbeing and prosperity are now at stake.
DISMEMBERED lays bare the deliberate attack on the public sector. It can’t go on. It’s time to reinstate our state.
