Media coverage


“The Backbencher has a very enjoyable read to give away this week – Lionel Zetter’s The Political Campaigning Handbook, courtesy of Harriman House. Not only is it just the thing for anyone thinking of applying for Peter Watts’s old job, it is full of engaging anecdotes about canvassing – did you hear the one about the woman who opened the door wearing only a towel? – and packed with useful advice (“There are a number of ways of getting into controlled access flats”).”
