Format: Hardcover
A fascinating and devastating revelation of the cloaks of secrecy adopted by this politician. Tom Bower exposes the real Geoffrey Robinson, the man who was not the saviour of Jaguar Cars, not the engineering supremo heralded by Labour politicians and not as powerful as Maxwell which he attempted to be. If Tom Bower's facts are correct this man should not be a Member of Parliament and should instead be detained in another Gov't establishment with bars but not the alcoholic kind. Despite being a historical account of the rise and fall of Robinson, this book reads at the speed of a bestsellingnovel and was impossible to put down.

I had believed Mr Robinson's publicity in the Innocenti/Jaguar days, so when an alternative picture started to emerge in his Paymaster General days I wondered where the truth lay. This meticulously researched book suggests an answer. It did nothing to reduce my cynicism about politicians!
