John O'Farrell - what a Guy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Things Can Only Get Better: Eighteen Miserable Years in the Life of a Labour Supporter, 1979-1997 (Paperback)
Well my review of this product is going to be a little biased, since I met the author, and he has signed my copy.
So I bought this book during the Eastleigh by-election campaign, John was our candidate, and he turned out to be a great campaigner.
At the start of the campaign, Liberal voters by the bucket-load and also a few Tories were changing sides, and deciding to vote with us - and John was instrumental in this. After a few weeks when the stupid press had continuously said that we couldn't win, the public became a bit less friendly but that wasn't John's fault.
I purchased this book from a third-party retailer, through amazon, at the start of the by-election campaign, and received it by the end which was fair enough, considering John had suddenly become famous, this was his first book on a short print-run, and the entire press wanted to see his quote about the Brighton bomb.
It's really funny - sympathetic and enjoyable. Buy this book!
