Editorial Reviews


"Not unlike the Alan Clark diaries but without the modesty or discretion. A very entertaining read." Patrick Kidd, The Times "Think Alan Clark Diaries on crack." Nigel Nelson, The People "Don't read this book if you want to become a Member of Parliament. Be sure to read it if you don't." Jeffrey Archer "All politicians have feet of clay. Most are w***ers." Lord Bruce of Donington "It's a fun, naughty read." The Spectator "The cracking memoirs of Jerry Hayes." Sunday People "[T]his highly entertaining memoir of 14 years as a backbencher... An impressive collection of gossipy ancedotes about his former colleagues." The Times "His book contains a whole cornucopia of fascinating and usually hilarious anecdotes from his days at Westminster." Chris Moncrieff, Western Daily Press "The most foul-mouthed political memoir of all time - a hilarious mish-mash of gossip and character assassination - funnier than Alan Clark's Diaries." Ian Hernon, Tribune "[The] story is pure Hayes, in classic matey-talk - That's the penance we pay for electing politician's with a sense of humour." The Tablet, Paul Routledge "Hayes gives an amusing, and at times cringe-worthy, account of his time in public life." Public Service Magazine
