Punch & Judy Politics : An Insiders' Guide to Prime Minister's Questions Hardback
Prime Minister's Questions is the bear pit of British politics.
Watched and admired around the world, it is often hated at home for bringing out the worst in our politicians.
Yet despite successive leaders trying to get away from `Punch and Judy politics', it's here to stay. Ayesha Hazarika and Tom Hamilton spent five years preparing Ed Miliband for the weekly joust, living through the highs and lows, the drama, the tension and the black humour of the political front line.
Here, they lift the lid on PMQs - what works, what doesn't, how to land a good heckle and what it's really like to be in the room getting the leader ready for combat. With their unique knowledge plus personal recollections from key players from both sides, including Tony Blair, David Cameron, William Hague, Ed Miliband, George Osborne, Vince Cable, Harriet Harman and Neil Kinnock, this insightful and often hilarious book takes you behind the scenes of some of the biggest PMQs moments.
