One of the most engaging books I have read in a long time. If ever one wants to know how "The Mother of Parlements" actually works, or for that matter politics in general, Gyles Brandreths memoirs are the place to start. Brandreth is a modern day Pepy, clear sited in terms of human folly, enhanced by a self effacing sense of humour as he dissects the daily travails of a member of the British establishment. Wonderful!

Gyles Brandreth's new book is a marvellously well-crafted and naturally comic account of the author's five years as MP for the City of Chester. It chronicles the last parliament of Conservative Power under the premiereship of John Major. It makes compelling reading and has completely distracted me from my academic work.
