Britain has become a bureacratic and authoritarian state watched over by a quarter of the world’s CCTV cameras, a study of Labour’s decade in power claims.

National debt is running at £175,000 per household, five times more than thought, while each year the Government has passed 3,500 regulations, along with 100,000 pages of rules and explanation.

‘The Rotten State of Britain’ claims to be the first “deeply researched factual account” of Tony Blair’s and Gordon Brown’s time in office.

The author Eammon Butler, a director of the leading think tank the Adam Smith Institute, claimed that his book had been turned down by two publishers because of the “unconventional” nature of the content.

He said: “A new form of centralised government and authoritarian government has been created that is worse than ever in Britain’s recent history.”

Among the claims in the book are that Britain has a quarter of the world’s CCTV cameras, the largest of any country and that taxes have risen by 51 per cent since 1997.

Mr Butler also claims national debt is running at £4.6billion, or £175,000 per household, not £729billion (£29,000 per household) as the Government claims.
