Not in My Name

Not in My Name

(2008)
A non fiction book by

 
It is a great and glorious tradition the world over - to vehemently state one thing and then do the exact opposite. Royals are doing it, reformed smokers are doing it, and politicians are virtually synonymous with it. And they all get away scot-free. Welcome to the heyday of hypocrisy.

Well, no longer will the devotees of the double standard be able to get away with it. From the Everyday Hypocrites (cyclists, white hip-hop fans, reality television haters) to the truly pungent Stinking Hypocrites (chav-haters, green campaigners and anti-Americans), Julie Burchill and Chas Newkey-Burden pull no punches in this forthright harangue of those who shamelessly say one thing and do another.

This topical, razor-sharp critique takes you into the world of modern hypocrites, listing their favourite holiday destinations, and their musical and sporting heroes. It also includes the hilarious Hypocrites' Ultimate Weekend.
