Monocle Reads: Asa Bennet talks to Georgina Godwin about his new book, ‘Romanifesto’. Boris Johnson loves to chuck in the odd Latin phrase but perhaps without due regard for Veritas. In this, is he much different from the Romans themselves? ‘Romanifesto’ looks at how the politics of 1,500 years ago influence our modern system and asks what today’s politicos can learn from their Roman predecessors.
