Camp, witty, stylish....enough about me...this is a triumph!,
This review is from: Breaking The Code: The Brandreth Diaries: Westminster Diaries, 1992-97 (Paperback)
Gyles Brandreth's (he of odd jumpers and word games) account of how he came to be elected and serve as a Member of Parliament.
Cutting (could he really say that about the fellow Tory he succeeded!!!), brutally honest account of the characters he came across.
His best mates appeared to have been Neil Hamilton, Jonathon Aitken and Stephen Milligan and he does admit to a lack of judgement at various stages in the book - indeed he celebrates his amatuerism, a brilliant David Mellor putdown of Brandreth is included showing that this author despite all the flaws he readily admits to, has a humility not found in the A.Clark diaries.
Excellent, full of inuendo, a book which for the most part makes politics interesting even if by the end he wasn't too unhappy to leave.
