Brandreth on Politics

Entertaining and great fun- I just found these Brandreth rules of politics- its well worth listening too- Brandreth was an MP and he tells stories about how people become MPs and how they fall down the ladder of politics as well. It involves people from all parties and his advice is 'schmooze em on the way up, you'll need them on the way down'- its funny and a real insight.

It's also worth reading his memoir, 'Breaking the Code'; it's interesting in and of itself, but it's also the only book that really reveals the inner workings of the Whips' Office.
