Code of Conduct Synopsis

*THE INSTANT TOP TWO SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, UPDATED WITH A NEW CHAPTER AT PAPERBACK* Cronyism. Nepotism. Conflicts of interest. Lying. Can the General Election fix parliament? Longstanding senior Labour politician and minister Chris Bryant tells the inside story of misconduct in Westminster - and how we might solve it. The extraordinary turmoil we have seen in British politics in the last few years has set records. We have had the fastest turnover of ministers in our history and more MPs suspended from the House than ever. Rules have been flouted repeatedly, sometimes in plain sight. The government seems unable to escape the brush of sleaze. And just when we think it's all going to calm down a bit, another scandal breaks. Having spent years as Chair of the Committees on Standards and Privileges, Chris Bryant has had a front-row seat for the battle over standards in our politics. Taking us inside the Pugin-carpeted corridors of Westminster, from the prime minister's office to the Strangers' Bar, he examines how parliament has got into this mess and suggests how it might - at last - get its house in order.
