He wrote one of the most forthright and honest political diaries ever, being a warts and all picture of the Thatcher era. The colourful language is very adult and is frequently laugh out loud funny. His proximity to power gave him a clear view of all the manoeuvrings and gossip within Westminster and Whitehall, and he was never one to hold back on his opinions.

The Best of Soul Music Soul had its roots in the 1950s when two forms of African-American music came together in a rather unlikely alliance. These were the pure yet emotional gospel sounds of the Southern Baptist church, and the more worldly, rocking approach of rhythm & blues. In 1954 Ray Charles took an old gospel song and gave it an R & B makeover to come up with I Got A Woman. For many that's where soul began. This compilation is a celebration of the best of early Soul Music.
