Publisher's Synopsis


'Honest, funny and very revealing. Her conclusion in particular, "Why we need politics" is essential' -  Adam Kay

'Funny and really readable' - Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio Two) 

'This book is here to take you inside the daily realities of Westminster. I don't mean that it's going to bore you to death with a blow by blow account of what it's like to sit on the Statutory Instrument Debate on Naval regulations 1968-2020 - but to demystify the places and practice of politics.'

From agonising decisions on foreign air strikes to making headlines about orgasms, from sitting in on history-making moments at the UN to eating McCain potato smiles at a black-tie banquet in China, the life of a politician is never dull. And it's also never been more important. But politics is far bigger than Westminster, and in this book Jess Phillips makes the compelling case for why now, more than ever, we all need to be a part of it.

With trademark humour and honesty, Jess Phillips lifts the lid on what a career in politics is really like and why it matters - to all of us. This is the inside story of what's really going on.

'Chatty and anecdotal' -  The Times Magazine

A robustly autobiographical, entertaining attempt to demystify life in Westminster' - The Observer
