The revelatory inside story of Britain's coalition government, that cuts right to the heart of the Lib Dem/Tory struggle, from a renowned political journalist. With exclusive, unprecedented access to all the major senior figures, including David Cameron, George Osborne, Boris Johnson and Nick Clegg, D’Ancona tells the truth behind key relationships, the U-turns, the shifts in policies, the dramatic fights and arguments and the warring within the party.
Matthew d'Ancona is the award-winning political columnist for The Sunday Telegraph, a position he has held since 1996. He was deputy editor of that paper before becoming editor of The Spectator in 2006. During his editorship, the magazine enjoyed record circulation and he was named Editor of the Year (Current Affairs) in the 2007 BSME awards.
This event marks the launch of his new book, In It Together: the inside story of the coalition government.
