The thick of it

AdvantagesTremendous account of the wretched personality flaws of New Labour's top men

DisadvantagesA bit too long, slightly smug

"...set a new low in the way the Government interacted with its employers, i.e. us, the electorate. Their obsession with media manipulation made it seem like they were governing the country purely in response to whatever Daily Mail editorial had middle England sputtering with rage that week. It may be that Blair and Brown stood for something underneath all the posturing and patronising, but if so, that never really came across. They allowed themselves ..." Read review

End Of The Party -Beginning Of The Truth?

AdvantagesThe paperback version offers 2 extra -and equally revealing- chapters

DisadvantagesSadly, the length and depth of the book might seem off-putting to the mass of x-factor Britain

"...a string of expletives at the least provocation. I can thoroughly recommend this book -especially in the appended, extra chapters paper-back edition- to anyone seeking insight to the infighting and chaos that brought to an end, a once great political party. For now. Having gone through an agonising, shameful era of shallow, self-serving national politics, this gripping and well-crafted read, re-establishes the need for robust and probing political ..."

Product Information for "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.
