Through riveting inside accounts how Britain's maverick politicians exploit the behind-the-scenes struggles in the major parties, Newark takes us through the triumphs and tribulations of the UKIP, the Lib Dems and anyone from Boris Johnson to Nadine Dorries. With entertaining portraits of the main players he exposes the astonishing feuds and raging rows. Tim Newark has talked to everyone who has counted since the fall of Labour. It is a brilliant account and a sheer delight for anyone interested in the opportunism and cut-throat side of those who rule us. Almost every page provides a fresh insight or piece of information not previously in the public domain.
