really liked it
Read from August 01 to 09, 2012

This is probably a very effective way of inoculating oneself against any desire to go into politics - the first 150 or so pages during which Mr Mullin is the 'Minister for Folding Deckchairs' (his term) in John Prescott's vast 'Department of Things and Stuff' (my term) especially.

Interesting too for the semi-insider's view it presents of the much talked about run-up to the Iraq war and for seeing what an MP *really* thinks of the constituents he has to pretend to sympathise with.
