An Insiders look at how Labour (New!) run the country,
This review is from: Servants of the People: The Inside Story of New Labour (Paperback)
Covering the 1st term in office of a New Labour government, this offering gives a detailed account of the real story behind the many, many scandals, leaks and the overwhelming central aim of the government: presentation.
The account of the Bernie Ecclestone affair was especially interesting, if John Major had been involved in such murky business he may have been forced to resign, but Teflon Tony lived to fight another day (as did the Chancellor, who it is clear from this lied about his knowledge of the £1 Million donation to his party).
The personalities at the top of New Labour are also brought into focus. Peter Mandelson is it appears despised, Prescott ignored, Brown (as Blairs Press Secretary said) has "psychological flaws" and the Prime Minister not quite as clean cut as he would have us believe.
Very good effort.
