A View from the Foothills: The Diaries of Chris Mullin

by Chris Mullin
£9.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (2010)

A View from the Foothills: The Diaries of Chris Mullin by Chris Mullin It is said that failed politicians make the best diarists. In which case I am in with a chance.'
 
Witty, incisive, and highly entertaining, Chris Mullin's diaries describe an unusual political career. To the apoplexy of the Labour whips, he was for a time the only person to have been appointed to government despite having voted against the Iraq war.
 
Through his career he has occupied several vantage points. He was a member of the backbench parliamentary committee which met weekly with the prime minister during the build-up to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. He twice served as chairman of the Home Affairs committee and was a minister in three departments - Environment, International Development and the Foreign Office. With an eye for detail and a keen sense of the ridiculous these diaries are an irreverent snapshot of political life in the early twenty-first century.
 
As a diarist Chris Mullin ranks with the best. If you enjoyed Yes, Minister or Alan Clark's diaries, you will love these. A View from the Foothills is certain to delight and amuse far beyond the political classes.
