    The twenty years of parliamentary sketches this book covers chimes with the period in my life when I held politicians in total disdain and could at least stomach hearing about their antics Nowadays I hold them in lower regard and try to live in a politician free zone ignoring the boorish behaviour at every opportunity.But the recent sad death of Simon Hoggart brought this book to mind.A whole collection of his best writing which starts at the fag end of a tired Tory government run by John Major, through the genuine relief and excitement of a Tony Blair led Labour government, till that ran out of steam and the cycle started again with a coalition government that instantly looked tired.There were many times I laughed out loud, countless times I smiled and pretty much remained amused throughout Laughter really is the best medicine There is a certain modern Wodeho...

    An enjoyable read and a reminder of times and politicians both past and in some cases also forgotten The recent death of Simon Hoggart was sad, depriving us of such witty and humourous writing as this book provides This is a summary, a digest of 20 years of commons sketch writing and covers the period from John Major s government right through the rise and fall of Tony Blair as PM, the entry into the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that ...

    The late Simon Hoggart was one of the best Parliamentary Sketch writers His work for the Observer and the Guardian was was always incisive and funny That said, this collection is perhaps not the ideal representation of his work.

    Marvellous stuff Not only was Hoggat an excellent sketch writer, but the book covers a 20 year period and recalls some largely forgotten politicians Humour and history
