Propagating the myth of Dunkirk.

Funny only in a forced, unfunny way.

A funny, personal and interesting account of the years from 1997 to 2017 for a Labour supporter. Some of those times were agony to remember, others were entertaining. The ups and downs of politics are here as John O'Farrell tries to understand voters, stands as a candidate himself and mirrors politics with his campaign to open a new school. He talks about the need for compromise and caring for people. An excellent read.

It was okay. The plot was quite predictable but I found the characters likeable.
