From the Publisher
Few Conservative Ministers are better qualified to tell the inside story of the party's highs and lows during the 1990s than Ian Lang. He entered Parliament in the 1979 election which swept Margaret Thatcher to power, and eleven and a half years later was to witness at close quarters the process of her removal. Appointed to John Major's first Cabinet as Scottish Secretary, he became President of the Board of Trade after acting as John Major's campaign manager in that year's Tory Party leadership election, during which he kept a day by day diary. This autobiography is written in the engaging and witty manner to be expected of a former writer for the Cambridge footlights.
