A Golden Age of Politics,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Who Goes Home?: Scenes from a Political Life (Paperback)
Covering a period of British political history when party leaders were people of stature and substance rather than today's "style over substance" apologies for leaders, this is a wonderful evocation of a political system where the parties actually stood for something tangible, and not the wishy washy centre ground fought over by the three main parties today.
A beautifully written memoir of a fascinating time of political activity - this book will be best enjoyed by those who, like me, lived through those times, and who lament the decline into the trivial, self seeking and thoroughly unprincipled politics we suffer today.
