Details

From agonising decisions on foreign air strikes to making headlines about orgasms, from sitting in on history-making moments at the UN to eating potato smiles at a black-tie banquet in China, the life of a politician is never dull. With her trademark humour and honesty, the much-loved Labour MP Jess Phillips shares the inside story about what actually goes on within the walls of Westminster. Lifting the lid on what a career in politics is really like, she argues that it is more important than ever for us all to be a part of it.
