Inhaltsangabe: Politics Strangest Characters is the latest offering from Robson Books hugely successful Strangest series. British political history teems with eccentrics, and as the contents of this book prove, Britain has a pre-eminent claim to the title of the World s Leading Political Asylum. Consider Col. Sibthorp, the most reactionary MP ever, who in 1840 successfully opposed the granting of £50,000 a year to Prince Albert because he hated foreigners. Or A P Herbert, the only MP who specialised in making speeches in verse; he even corresponded with the Inland Revenue in rhyming couplets. Perhaps the most eccentric MP of all was Trebitsch Lincoln. Born into a Jewish family in Hungary in 1879, he became a fraudster before emigrating to Britain to establish himself first as an Anglican curate, and then as a Liberal MP in 1910 for ten months. He later fled the country to become a German revolutionary and a secret agent, then led a Chinese cult as a Buddhist abbot, and finally, after offering his services to the Japanese and then Nazi Germany, he died in Shanghai, possibly poisoned by Nazi agents. These and many other peculiar politicians are hilariously portrayed in Politics Strangest Characters. About the Author Neil Hamilton was born in 1949, entered Parliament in 1983 as MP for Tatton and held posts as a government whip and corporate affairs minister. Since leaving the House of Commons in 1997, he has been constantly in the media together with his wife, Christine.
Über den Autor: Neil Hamilton was born in 1949 and grew up in the mining valleys of South Wales, where Tories were regarded as eccentrics. Neil became a Tory. In 1983 he became MP for Tatton. He was The Spectator Parliamentary Wit of the Year in 1988, a Government Whip 1990-2 and Corporate Affairs Minister at the DTI 1992-4. Since leaving the House of Commons in 1997, he has largely devoted himself to fighting to clear his name in the Cash for Questions allegations made by Mohammad al Fayed and keeping lawyers employed!
