Alan Johnson

The Long and Winding Road

Book Now

Winner of the Parliamentary Book award, in the third volume of his autobiography Alan Johnson tells of his early political skirmishes as a trades union leader, where negotiating skills and charismatic style led to him being chosen to stand in the constituency of Hull West and Hessle, entering Parliament as an MP after the landslide election victory for Labour in May 1997. This is the story, not just of Westminster politicking and skulduggery, but of a man for whom, supporting the struggle of his constituents, the Hull trawlermen and their families, comes more naturally than the byzantine complexities of Parliamentary procedure.
