9780552171229: I Never Promised You a Rose Garden: An Insider's Guide to Modern Politics, the Coalition and the General Election

Exactly a week after the general election, two men—Call me Dave and Call me Nick—walked side by side out into the rose garden of No. 10 Downing Street to give their first joint press-conference as Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, looking for all the world like men in love. It was a romance in which people wanted to believe. But it was also one that people couldn't help but mistrust. Most unnerving, however, was the sense that they both couldn't quite believe their luck. Just how much fun the coalition was going to be for the rest of the country was then unclear. But now, almost five years on, this must-read guide to Westminster and the forthcoming General Election exposes the realities of Coaltion, while also featuring how Labour came to get the wrong Miliband, the Big Topics—Europe, Immigration, Education, Phone Hacking, and the Economy ('Stupid'...)—as well as UKIP and other dubious acronyms, and the countdown to the General Election 2015: five years of planning since the last one. This book is insightful, painful, and hilarious, whichever side you thought you were on.

About the Author:

John Crace is a Guardian staff feature writer and columnist, and author of the regular "Digested Read" and "Digested Classic" columns. He is the author of Harry's Games: Inside the Mind of Harry Redknapp and Vertigo: One Football Fan's Fear of Success.

Review:

"Crace has a secret weapon in his armoury when he tells the story of the coalition and modern politics: his imaginary accounts of conversations between the people in power. They leave you thinking: "So THAT's how it was!" It's a rare gift. And it's very funny. " * John Humphrys * "I thoroughly enjoyed this funny, informative account of the coalition. He reminds us that under every rose garden is a steaming great pile of manure." -- John O'Farrell * Twitter * "Loved John Crace's new, wry look at the coalition "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden". A GREAT Xmas present." -- Martha Lane Fox * Twitter * "One of the best politics books of the year: a satirical account of the bizarre world of coalition bickering." * The Guardian *

Exactly a week after the general election, two men - `Call me Dave and `Call me Nick - walked side by side into the rose garden of No. 10 Downing Street to give their first press-conference as Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, looking for all the world like men in love. It was a romance in which people wanted to believe. But it was also one that people couldn t help but mistrust.
