Politics: Between the Extremes
In conversation with Mike Neary
Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg lifts the lid on the arcane world of Westminster and offers startling insights into the hidden workings of government. Taking us behind the scenes at Downing Street and Whitehall, he shows how the spirit of compromise with which the coalition began was gradually eroded. He writes candidly about his own mistakes – including the controversy around tuition fees – and the tense stand-offs within Government. Despite his own battering experience, he remakes the case for multi-party governments and pragmatic compromise.
