Labour Pains by Peter Kilfoyle
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Labour to the core, Peter Kilfoyle became MP for Liverpool Walton in 1991. When Labour came to power in 1997 Kilfoyle was awarded influential roles in the Cabinet Office and, later, the Ministry of Defence, but quit suddenly after becoming disillusioned with the New Labour project. Since then, he has been a vociferous backbench critic of both Blair and his successor. Labour Pains is his perspective on the Blair-Brown era, from the failure of the 1992 election campaign to the mediocrity of the current government. Irreverent, witty and thoughtful, this insider's account of our political age is replete with anecdotes, some none too flattering, and reflections on the two men who, Kilfoyle believes, have ruined his beloved Labour.
