Summary
"For more than half a century Geoffrey Goodman was one of Fleet Street's foremost political and industrial reporters. This book is his record of what it was like to work at the heart of British politics. Taking us through the years that followed the end of World War II right up to today, he offers a compelling story of the characters and events that shaped British political history." "This book will be of interest to anyone who wants an insider's account of great characters in British political history, and in particular to the evolution of the Labour party over the course of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
