5.0 out of 5 stars A Book to make you feel Nostalgic for honesty and integrity, 24 May 2002
This review is from: John Major: The Autobiography (Paperback)
Whatever the drawbacks of the book may be, and there are pleanty, it is a breath of fresh air.
Some will criticise it for the lack of full disclosure (by which they mean dirt) regarding Thatcher, Hague, Portillo and others. Yet, we should all applaud the man for having the integrity not to speak ill of those he was once an ally, servant, colleague of. This defines the difference between Major and Blair (as well as some of the aforementioned). It seems like a totally different world, yet it was only a short while ago.
You should read this book, if for no other reason, then to get a perspective of the modern day political cynicism, and how it does not have to be that way. We are all at fault for letting it become like this. This book can serve as a reminder of what we should expect and demand, rather than the spoon fed spin that today's politicians of all parties seek to weave, and the obliging media regurgitates without much consideration. The Blair theme music "Things can only get better", at least from the political perspective, could not have been more wrong!
