Show 209 - Alan Milburn
Stop what you're doing, find a quiet space and immerse yourself in this impressively candid recollection of the new Labour government from one of its leading lights. This has it all - an insight into the principles behind controversial policies, what it was like behind-the-scenes during the fuel protests, the tensions between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown - as well as a frank assessment of the things that new Labour got wrong. Alan is remarkably open about his own upbringing and the effect that it may, or may not have had, on some of the decisions he took.
Get comfy, this is a real classic.
