Modesty in the foothills

4 08 2011

An outstanding political memoir. Remarkable for three main reasons: first, Chris Mullin comes across as a genuine and likeable individual doing his best, sticking to his principles and working hard in the most challenging of circumstances. Secondly, he demonstrates an extraordinary level of respect and loyalty towards ‘the man’. And thirdly, and perhaps most interestingly, he identifies a future Prime Minister in the young and sharp David Cameron.

I don’t think he is at all ‘indiscreet’ as the front cover blurb would have us believe. Rather he just tells it as he finds it.

Well worth a read and looking forward to picking up its successor volume.
