    If the market is to be believed then this book is close to worthless You can actually pick up a paperback copy for a penny on This is a lamentable as the memoir at the very least provides an interesting look at how political parties commit suicide under the strains of irreconcilable centrifugal forcesThe key to understanding John Major's premiership is an offhan

    A truly revealing and at times very humorous account of a man who history and conventional wisdom have derided as the boring bloke between Thatcher and Blair Instead John Major was in power for six and a half years during which some of the most important events of the post Cold War era occurred and that's before you even consider the pivotal role he played in the latt
