Recommended Reading List #19

'Independent Labour' peer, Lord David Stoddart, who was a Reading councillor from 1954-72, is apparently "Reading’s most veteran political animal".

The 55-year political careerist reminisces about his experiences in local and national politics, complaining that Government "has taken Parliament for granted" as it has become more professional and the office of Prime Minister has become more presidential.
