Picking up where The Hands of History left off, Simon Hoggart's brilliant new collection of parliamentary sketches takes us from the dying days of Tony Blair's leadership, through the shadow-filled days of Gordon Brown and on to the utterly bewildering days of that comedy double-act Cameron and Clegg. He charts the events that made the news, the faux-pas that should have, and the myriad mistakes that have landed us all where we are now. Above all, he gives us incisive and witty pen-portraits of those responsible for our plight: the belligerent Brown, the unintelligible Prescott, the slippery Cameron and the bemused Miliband This is a hilarious account of a period which, on the surface, doesn't give us much to laugh about, from the master wit of Westminster.
