Doing the job

Booker in his column in The Sunday Telegraph makes the case for Ann Winterton and, in so doing, also writes about The Ministry of Defeat.

By the by, we also got a review of the book yesterday in our local paper, the Telegraph and Argus, reproduced here. Thank you Jim. Interestingly, the MoD has already reacted to the title, trying to beat us to the punch. Time will tell if they succeed.

The serious point from Booker though is that, while Guido is whipping up the mob, there are MPs who, out of the limelight, have been working assiduously in the background, doing the job they were elected to do.

And when the mob gets its way, what then? A House full of Ester Rancids?
