There has been a spate of books recently on liberty and democracy. On my desk as I write there are half a dozen published within the past few months with titles such as What Price Liberty?; The Assault on Liberty; Democracy: a Thousand Years in Pursuit of British Liberty; and A Useful Fiction: Adventures in British Democracy. Their publication is a timely reminder of how we got where we are and evidence that cracks were appearing in our political system long before the expenses scandal that has engulfed Westminster.
