In It Together The Inside Story of the Coalition Government

by Matthew D'Ancona

In It Together The Inside Story of the Coalition Government Synopsis

Andrew Rawnsley told the inside story of new labour in The End of the Party, and now renowned political journalist Matt d'Ancona cuts right to the heart of the Lib Dem/Tory struggle in In It Together. With exclusive, unprecedented access to all the major senior figures, from David Cameron, George Osborne, Boris Johnson and Nick Clegg, he tells the truth behind key relationships, the U-turns, the dramatic fights and arguments and the warring within the party. A breathtaking book that takes you into the heart of government, it reveals the truth behind the corridors of Whitehall and Number 10. Matthew d'Ancona is the award-winning political columnist for The Sunday Telegraph, Evening Standard and GQ. Previously, he was Editor of The Spectator, steering the magazine to record circulation. In 2007, he was named Editor of the Year (Current Affairs) at the BSME Awards. In 2011, he won the award for 'Commentariat of the Year', the highest honour at the Comment Awards. He lives in east London.
