Cameron's Coup: How the Tories took Britain to the brink is a 2015 book by British journalists Polly Toynbee and David Walker.

Synopsis

Toynbee and Walker provide a highly critical analysis of the premiership of David Cameron and the Coalition between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. They blend 'analysis, statistics, and moving human stories' concerning austerity in the United Kingdom, and alleged Conservative attacks on the welfare state.

Reception

The book was described in Prospect magazine as "initially enjoyable but ultimately a little exhausting".[1] It was praised by George Eaton in the New Statesman,[2] but strongly criticised in The Times by Tim Montgomerie as being "dreadful".[3]
