Things can only get better

I understand that the writer wrote jokes for Tony Blair. I do hope he didn't write that one about weapons of mass destruction. It didn't go well.

Labour activists will recognise many of the situations in this book and I certainly enjoyed reading it. It would be possible to take exception to the tone of this book if it were not delivered with such a self-deprecatory air. It is written from the point of view of a Labour Party activist and it shows empathy. I cannot think of another book of which one could say that. For non-Labour readers, I have no idea what they will make of this book but they will certainly find it interesting and amusing.
