Michael Kerr has thrown caution to the wind in writing such a quick and topical book, and no doubt he will get a few knocks for doing so, but whilst offering warnings to his former colleagues he sets out clearly and constructively to help them. Had he waited a year or two and refined every page it would have had no impact.
The journal entries are classic - at once they make both the 2005 election seem interesting and the UUP seem human - which is no easy task.
The important parts of the book are however at the beginning and end of the book. There is nothing to my mind in print that provides a better articulation of what moderate Unionism has been about over the last decade. The mixed style of the book makes Kerr's analysis accessible to even the slowest learners in his party and within Unionism - I imagine this is the audience he is aiming it at.
I have no doubt people will pick holes in this book and attack it for many different reasons but that is surely because it will prove very uncomfortable reading for those who have let the Unionist position slip through their own bloody mindedness and selfishness.
This book should be read and thought about.
