Dip Into NEW PAPERBACKS [jsb_filter_by_tags count="15" show_more="10" sort_by="total_products"/] A selection of recent paperbacks.

It’s enough to repulse the ordinary man (sic), already angered by the continuing hold of the British class system. She moved in circles whose values may not be to everyone’s taste (anti-green, anti-poor, anti-common) but she certainly tells it as she sees it and I don’t think she was as bad as the others. There was a lot of publicity, and many extracts available in the national press for this humdinger of a political tell-tale “diary”.A professional partner and loyal spouse, Swire has strong political opinions herself - sometimes more 'No, Minister' than 'Yes'. These are the things which the author doesn’t realise she’s revealing: how utterly self-seeking, venal and empty-hearted are herself and her MP husband and, it could seem, the whole Cameron, Osborne, Johnson clique. Remarkables REMARKABLES Intriguing, stunning, or otherwise remarkable books These include fine editions, foreign publications exceptional for their interest or production, special editions and some first-rate books from very small publishers. Despite all the trumpeting in the press about how no one (especially their friends the Camerons) would ever speak to her again, her overall assessment of David Cameron was complimentary.

From Samantha Cameron’s appalled reaction to the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, to what can only be described as too much information about David Cameron’s colonoscopy, she spills the guts of four governments in a book most of Westminster will doubtless be reading this autumn.Swire has literary ability, a quality that manifests itself in the colour with which she describes the show and the freaks within it. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Diary of an MP's Wife is an irresistible, informal history and a rare tell-all about what it's really like to live behind the headlines of British political life.

Swire’s other close confidantes include No 10 gatekeeper Kate Fall, a woman who knows where plenty of bodies are buried, and Amber Rudd, who as home secretary becomes her window into May’s cabinet once Hugo has fallen out of favour. On another Swire visit, “Dave” is glued to the movie Atonement, apparently with the sole aim of ogling Keira Knightley’s nipples. Its weaknesses were, as many have said, a lack of footnotes about who people referred to were, particularly in the early part of the journal. Even better, they are written from the point of view of an insider; Sacha Swire is the daughter of another Tory Minister and devotee of Margaret Thatcher, John Nott, and has the ethics and ethos of the Tory Party imbued in her like letters in a stick of Blackpool Rock.The diary covers not only the rise and fall of the Cameroons, but also the shenanigans surrounding Brexit and the inexorable rise of Boris, concluding at the end of last year when Sir Hugo (as he was by then) left parliament.
