Summary
"Politicians: they're either untrustworthy, power-hungry, hypocritical misfits or hopeless idealists doomed to languish forever on the backbenches. And it's not just the public and media who think of them this way - many politicians take a similar view of their colleagues." "They're in a tough, unforgiving business. Those political careers that don't end in defeat or disgrace frequently disappear into obscurity. It can take years to move from activist to candidate and then, if you're very lucky, to MP. And what sort of person likes having their business or family affairs all over the news? Or their mistakes trumpeted and their triumphs belittled? Why do people go into it? And what do they get from it all?"--BOOK JACKET
