A politicians story

At first I did not take to this book but gave it a second chance and enjoyed it. The insights found here e.g. his experience with the queen and political life in general you don't come across every day.

Sorely missed but never forgotten Mr. Benn

Hearing Tony's dulcit tones reading back his own abridged diary entries really is a great.
