Description
MP for Chester and government whip, Brandreth enjoyed a ringside seat at the great political events of the 1990s, from the fall of Margaret Thatcher to the election of Tony Blair. With candid descriptions of the key figures, from the leading players to the ministers who fell from grace, these diaries provide extraordinary insight into the reality of modern government and the bizarre life of a parliamentary candidate and new MP. They also contain the first insider's account of the Government Whips' Office. This new edition features material previously excised for legal reasons, as well as additional diaries that take the story on another ten years to the departure of Tony Blair and the arrival as Tory leader of David Cameron.

By far the best political diary of recent years; far more perceptive and revealing than Alan Clark's. THE TIMES
