Planes, Trains and Toilet Doors: 50 Places That Changed British Politics

£25.00

Description

Forget Westminster intrigues and parliamentary bust-ups. Some of the key events that have shaped modern British politics happened not in the cloisters and carpeted tea rooms of the Houses of Parliament, but in the car parks, village halls and seaside resorts, where the mundane have played host to the mighty. From Pitt the Younger's Putney Heath duel to finding Margaret Thatcher a voice coach on the train, Harold Wilson's Scilly season holidays to John Major's dental appointment, these (and many more) are the places where chance meetings, untimely deaths and daft decisions changed the course of politics. Matt Chorley has spent almost two decades covering Westminster politics, and his insider knowledge and smart analysis, combined with his background in comedy, create a hilarious history of how politics actually happens.
