I Hate Tony Blair books.


Looking at the stuff Tony Blair has written he can obviously look after himself but I would like to read something more critical on him so can anyone recommend a good, I hate Tony Blair book?

Who doesnt?

Then again the chances are low that he actually read the books hes supposed to have written.

Anthony Sheldon's two volumes are pretty good accounts. He's reasonably critical of his subject and more critical of the wider cast.

You are right. "The title makes it look like that you hate books written by Tony Blair." I really will have to be more careful.

I see the Sheldon two volume effort is going for £0.01
