This is a timely, heartfelt and tough analysis of Britain's New Labour years from a hugely respected journalist and former politician. It is destined to become the definitive critique of the Blair years. Martin Bell dissects scandals from Bernie Ecclestone to David Blunkett; explores Labour's contempt for democracy, electoral reform and cash-for-peerages; attacks the illegal and utterly disastrous decision to go to war in Iraq, and questions the deployment in Afghanistan - he visited both countries in the course of writing the book. He berates the government for its neglect of the victims of its wars, and the faith-based foreign policy behind their deployment. He describes the politicization of the Foreign Office and asks how an ethical foreign policy can be consistent with the continued use of cluster bombs. Behind much of this lies the descent of New Labour's media management skills into the telling of bald untruths in the face of overwhelming evidence. Wide-ranging and pulling no punches, "The Truth that Sticks" is a crushing analysis of Labour's decade of deception, dishonesty and abuse of power, delivered with precision and great passion. "The Truth that Sticks" is a book that only Martin Bell could have written.
