This Honourable House Summary

This Honourable House by Edwina Currie

Politicians are amongst the most reviled and distrusted of all professionals.

How might they undermine their enemies - or gain on rivals who get too close - and should they? How do their families and loved ones cope - especially when loyalty is under strain.
