2 April 2012
Michael Spicer, Baron Spicer of Cropthorne, had a varied and remarkable political career by anyone s standards. During three and a half decades as a Conservative Member of Parliament, Spicer has held a plethora of essential political roles both within the party and in government, including Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Transport, and again at the Department of Energy, and a Minister at the Department of Environment. More recently, as a backbencher he chaired the highly influential 1922 committee before receiving a peerage in May 2010. Part political diary, part cautionary tale, part commentary, the spicer diaries is not the dusty memoirs of a Tory grandee, rather it is a collection of absorbing reflections on thirty-five years at the heart of British politics.
'a very readable canter through some of the key developments of the last forty years of British politics' - Graham Brady MP, The House Magazine
