The political thriller of the year – UPDATED WITH A DEVASTATING NEW CHAPTER ON THE CHILCOT INQUIRY
‘Excellent’ Sunday Times
‘Devastating’ Daily Mail
When Tony Blair became prime minister in 1997, he was, at forty-three, the youngest to hold that office since 1812. With a landslide majority, his approval rating was 93 per cent and he went on to become Labour’s longest-serving premier. So what went wrong?
With unprecedented access to more than 180 Whitehall officials, military officers and politicians, Tom Bower has uncovered the full story of Blair’s decade in power. He has followed Blair’s trail from his resignation, since which he has built a remarkable empire advising tycoons and tyrants. The result is the political thriller of the year, illuminating the mystery of an extraordinary politician who continues to fascinate to this day.
Bower delivers a devastating indictment . . . I will bet my socks that his account of the events that led to the Iraq war is more comprehensive that Chilcot, far more forthright in identifying the guilty men and informed by better judgement.
Broken Vows supplies an implacably researched account of Tony Blair's substitution of bluff for honesty.
The politician that emerges from what is probably Bower's finest, and most important, achievement so far is a talented showman . . . This is an excellent book, for sure.
Probably the most explosive book of the year.
