Book Learning #26

Letters to a young politician by Alistair MacAlpine.

I had wanted something that would have illuminated the shadowy world of the Tory MP, I ended up with a flighty, sub Wodehouse ramble through drunkeness and intruige. It was fair enough but it just reminded me why we should never trust our elected officals and why Tories are almost always complete wankers.

You are welcome.

I did warn you when you requested the loan. Those bloody Indonesian invaders!

I knew it to be a long shot when I saw the author, what a wanker.
Still, I needed to be sure.
For an authorative view on this subject may I recommend Jeremy Paxman's rather excellent 'The Political Animal'?
