ConsA bit too long, slightly smug

Do you remember when people used to have respect for politicians? No, me neither. Probably they never have. But I do remember a time when political coverage wasn’t so obsessed with personalities; and a time when people didn’t regard politicians with quite as much hatred and suspicion as we have...

This is a book, so comprehensively and entertainingly revealing about recent events in UK government that I'm tempted to say I'm at a loss for words.

Product Information : The End of the Party - Andrew Rawnsley

Manufacturer's product description

Andrew Rawnsley's bestselling and award-winning Servants of the People was acclaimed across all media as the most authoritative and entertaining account of New Labour and its first term in office. As one reviewer put it, 'Rawnsley's ability to unearth revelation at the highest level of government may leave you suspecting that there are bugs in the vases at Number 10.' The End of the Party is packed with more astonishing revelations as Rawnsley takes up the New Labour story from the day of its second election victory in 2001. There are riveting inside accounts of all the key events from 9/11 and the Iraq War to the financial crisis and the parliamentary expenses scandal; and entertaining portraits of the main players as Rawnsley takes us through the triumphs and tribulations of New Labour as well as the astonishing feuds and reconciliations between Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Peter Mandelson. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and confidential conversations with those at the heart of power, Andrew Rawnsley provides the definitive account of the rise and fall of New Labour.
