5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive account of New Labour's demise, 25 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The End of the Party (Paperback)
This book is destined to become the standard work charting the downfall of New Labour. Its packed full of juicy quotes and asides from the main protagonists in British politics, the Labour movement and the civil service during the last decade. This makes it a rather more credible account than the sanitised diaries and memoirs that have emerged from Labour politicians in recent years. Rawnsley canters through the key events of the Labour government: the relentless undermining of Blair by Brown and his acolytes; the impact of the war on terror and Iraq conflict on Blair's popularity; Brown's flawed political judgements; the endless sleaze, media manipulation and low politics skullduggery; the 2008/09 banking crisis and the 2010 election. Rawnsley's writing is lucid and witty and he points his rapier invective at Blair's evangelical self belief, Brown's lack of communication skills and bullish temperament, as well as Mandelson's reptilian political talents.
