Hilarious, incisive portraits 28 Jun. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Even though I don't share Critchley's political
leanings (until his retirement from politics, he
was one of the most prominent "wet" Tory critics
of Thatcherism), his portraits of Mrs Thatcher's
men (and one woman -- Edwina Currie) are so well-
etched (in acid ink) that one can't help chuckling
or even at times bursting into laughter. For instance,
he points out that in any group photo of Thatcherites,
you would have immediately recognised Nick Ridley --
he was the one with the cigarette. Some of the humour
may not be apparent to those who haven't closely
followed British politics, though.
