2017 Election - Book Recommendation
 
I don't normally recommend books, but I feel that I have to make an exception. My son suggested that I might enjoy a new book by Tim Ross and Tom McTague called 'Betting the House' which is described on the cover as 'The Inside Story of the 2017 Election'.

He wasn't wrong. It's brilliantly written and researched and - even though I know how things turned out - absolutely gripping.

I would highly recommend this book to all of you who have any interest at all in politics ... and even if you don't the story of fallible people from all sides and all parties making human mistakes will surely keep you spellbound.

In case you need more convincing, there's a preview HERE.

Theresa didn't win, but claimed power. Jeremy didn't win but his supporters claimed victory.
