2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By ROBERT WORLEY on 5 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this paperback when it was first published - and I still have my near pristine copy although the pages have become a little tanned. Some good black/white photographs. It is a very readable journalist account of Thorpe's political life with descriptions of him 'on the stump' in rural Devonshire - much of which as changed during the intervening years. Among his many gifts was an extraordinary memory which was usefully employed while canvassing - he never forgot a name. He could have been an outstanding Prime Minister - had conditions allowed - but he had some very odd colleagues in the then Liberal Party - the late Peter Bessel also Cyril Smith jump to mind! But to have endured the loss of his first wife in a car crash - followed by all the scandal of his trial finished him and his health failed. May he Rest in Peace.
