    Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart of our Establishment, from the lobbies of Westminster to the newsrooms, boardrooms, and trading rooms of Fleet Street and the City.

    In this acclaimed investigation, Owen Jones explores how the working class has gone from 'salt of the earth' to 'scum of the earth.' Exposing the ignorance and prejudice at the heart of the chav caricature, he portrays a far more complex reality. The chav stereotype, he argues, is used by governments as a convenient fig leaf to avoid genuine engagement with social and economic problems and to justify widening inequality.

She is thanked by the police and the ambulance staff. It is the first time that she uses her powers for anything useful.

    This book is for all those authors who dread publishing their books whether it be in printed or electronic format or both. I have published well over a hundred books to all the major printers and distributors, so it came as a surprise when I recently became aware that some excellent writers are put off self-publishing themselves because they find the task too confusing and difficult and so they pay others to do it for them.

    Asian Shorts came about because of a sequence of events on one weekend in May 2015. A friend was telling me that he had several short stories with Asia as a backdrop, I was saying that I had a few as well, another friend sent me an email that he wanted to write a short on Pattaya, and one of my Thai cousins sent me her latest photo, the one on the cover of this book. It was like somebody was trying to tell me something, or several were anyway. The 19 stories by nine authors in this anthology were sent to me in one month, but are as varied as their writers.

    Lily was a happy little girl, which lasted until an 'uncle' started to abuse her from the age of eleven. She became shy and introverted, leading a lonely life until she moved to Bangkok to study at university. However, her thoughts and her past would not leave her alone, so, after classes, she began to seek out men she suspected of paedophilia and exact her own peculiar type of revenge on them. She became the vengeful Tiger Lily of Bangkok and terrified society, but how long could she keep evading the police, and did she secretly want to get caught anyway so she could make her story public?

    Tiger Lily of Bangkok in London picks up Lily's story in her second of two years as a student doctor at the hospital. On one of her days off, she reads an article in The Sunday Times about organised paedophile rings in London involving the very establishment of the country itself, and it incenses her. She can either ignore it or get involved. Her first reaction is to avoid rearousing the demon that had possessed her in Bangkok only a couple of years earlier, but when she meets fellow victims of child abuse, the die seems cast.
