Reading progress update: I've read 358 out of 451 pages.

Unspeakable: The Autobiography - John Bercow

The chapter on "How to be a Good MP" was both insightful into the background of some of the MPs that have represented in the House over the last 20 years and somewhat encouraging for anyone interested in getting involved in active politics. 

 

What I liked best about it, tho, was that Mr. Bercow - as he has done in most of the book - provides a record of parliamentary goings on.

He criticises some MPs for their failings and blunders, but - more importantly to me, and seemingly spending more time on it -  he praises some MPs for achievements that have made a major impact on people's lives and that would otherwise probably be soon forgotten.

 

I'll finish the book tonight.
