A View from the Foothills: The Diaries of Chris Mullin

£8.99

Product description

" 'It is said that failed politicians make the best diarists. In which case I am in with a chance.' Witty, incisive and highly entertaining, Christ Mullin's diaries describe an unusual political career. To apoplexy of the Labour whips, he was for a time the only person to have been appointed to government despite having voted against the Iraq war. With an eye for detail and a keen sense of the ridiculous these diaries are an irreverent snapshot of political life in the early twenty-first century. As a diarist Chris Mullin ranks with the best. If you enjoyed Yes Minister or Alan Clark's diaries, you will love these. A View from the Foothills is certain to delight and amuse far beyond the political classes."

Book in very good condition.
