John Bowers KC on Accountability and Transparency in Government


Littleton’s  John Bowers KC has recently published an eye-opening book in which he presents a fearless examination of the decline in ethical standards before, during and after the Johnson government. He focuses on the institutions responsible for holding the government accountable, exposing how they have been bypassed by prime ministers determined to impose their agenda. Through interviews with political insiders, Bowers shines a light on a culture of favouritism, where standards are upheld based on the assumption those in power can be trusted to behave.

Confronting the failings of the current system, Downward spiral presents concrete proposals for creating an alternative that is more transparent and accountable.

Publishing 16th April, available to buy from all good bookshops and online retailers. Order direct from the publisher here:
