Journals of Woodrow Wyatt Vol 2: Thatcher's Fall and Major's Rise by Woodrow Wyatt
Margaret Thatcher's fall from power is the dramatic core of this second volume of Woodrow Wyatt's sensational memoirs, covering the years 1989 until the election in 1992. Through Wyatt's indignant eyes, we see the overthrow of the woman he believes to be the best possible prime minister for Britain, presenting a completely new perspective on those momentous events and the atmosphere at the time.
Woodrow Wyatt continues to comment with total frankness on the foibles of his friends, watches them fall in and out of love, wines and dines politicians, royalty, journalists, aristocrats - like the lord he is and the millionaire he is not. In these journals he reveals himself nakedly, sharing his beliefs and achievements, his self-doubt and failures, with an unusual zest and honesty.
