What is politics? And why does it matter? Self-confessed  born-again voter  Daniel Blythe presents a popular, forceful argument designed to shake up anyone 's apathy.  Politics sets the agenda. Climate change, education, crime, housing   these are political issues, but for many, party politics is still a turn-off.  Daniel Blythe negotiates the political maze from the citizen' s point of view. Why should we vote? What do politicians do and why does it make a difference? Are you a Diehard, a Bloody-Noser or a Tactical? What can your MP do for you? And just why do they avoid answering direct questions?  Along the way, we examine the most fun general elections and the under-rated politicians; the sauciest scandals and the bizarre sexiest MP polls; the biggest political victories, the U-turns and betrayals; the issues on the street, the part played by your choice of newspaper and what manifestos really mean; how to make your vote count, how to protest, and why you should care about by-elections.  Whether you are disenchanted or a ballot-box regular, an activist or a floating voter, this is a book to amuse, inform and entertain. Irreverent, topical, sceptical and packed with useful facts and trivia, X Marks The Box takes you on a journey through apathy to activism  - and everything in between.
