Product description


'A thoroughly enjoyable, comprehensive book' Harry Mount, TLS

'A fascinating account of politics and drink... informative and entertaining' Alastair Campbell author of Winners and How They Succeed

'A wickedly fun read' Laura Kuenssberg, Political Editor, BBC

'Like being the only sober guest at an uproarious party' Sunday Times

'Fast-paced and witty... unputdownable' The Lady

'[An] entertaining history of political drinking' The Times

'Wright's excellent book, reveals that Donald I don't even have the excuse of being [drunk]' Trump is a teetotal' John Crace, Guardian

'A lively canter around a sozzled subject that's both informative and entertaining' Tatler

'A breezy, anecdote-rich and instructive survey of booze and politics' --The National

'[An] entertaining book... often funny, though not without sombre appraisals of many curtailed careers and damaged lives' Prospect

'Well researched and breezily told, Wright's book is an enjoyable romp' --New Criterion

'According to a new book, Order, Order! The Rise and Fall of Political Drinking by Ben Wright which looks set to be a corker... the dourest of Scots felt obliged to pretend to be a beer drinker, but harboured a private penchant for champagne, and could knock back a glass in one great gulp.' Telegraph

'Alcohol has always lubricated political life... [Order, Order!] is about the British experience with examples of careers enhanced and destroyed by booze' --Keith Simpson MP's Summer Reading List, Total Politics
