Dennis Skinner, Kevin Maguire Book and Novel

Dennis Skinner, Kevin Maguire - Authors


Dennis Skinner is the son of a miner sacked after the 1926 General Strike. Skinner, to the distress of his mother, and despite a Grammar School education, followed his dad down the pit. He was a Clay Cross and Derbyshire councillor before winning Bolsover for Labour in 1970, a seat he's held ever since. A former chairman of Labour, current member of the party's ruling National Executive Committee, Skinner's Parliamentary heckles and interventions are legendary. He was expelled so often from the Commons that suspension became an occupational hazard. Kevin Maguire is Associate Editor of the Daily Mirror and columnist on the New Statesman.
