I often hear people use phrases such as “if I were in charge I’d…” and “they should make a law against that”. Legendary comedian and activist Mark Thomas has toured the country to create The People’s Manifesto: a collection of forty ideas to change Britain for the better. From party manifestos being made legally binding, to maximum wages, to those in support of ID cards being banned from owning curtains, The People’s Manifesto is one of those books that, once you’ve finished laughing, chances are you’ll ponder for a short second before saying (or thinking) “actually that’s a really good idea” and move on to the next one.
