Douglas Carswell found prominence by calling for reform of parliamentary expenses before the 2009 expenses scandal. In recognition of his efforts to bring change to Westminster, in 2009 Spectator readers voted him Parliamentarian of the Year and The Daily Telegraph nominated him a Briton of the Year. His new book, The End of Politics and the Birth of iDemocracy, is published in October 2012.
