He decided to try his luck as a Conservative Party candidate - buoyed by an award from the RSPCA - presented by an incredulous Mrs. Thatcher - for rescuing a drowning dog from the River Thames, Parris beat Peter Lilley and Michael Howard to stand for the West Derbyshire constituency, and spent seven years in the House of Commons. His book is a surprising and eccentric story, sometimes funny and always entertaining, of a life lived in and around politics, by a writer once described by Alan Clark as the political commentator with 'the clearest pen and the most fastidious sense of quality'. Later they fell out, Parris accusing Clark of falling asleep in the Commons chamber and Clark calling Parris 'an absolute shit'. He of course provides insight into many politicians.

History has not looked kindly upon Neville Chamberlain. Despite a long and distinguished political career, his trip to Munich in 1938 and the 'appeasement' of Hitler have foreever overshadowed his many other achievements and blighted his reputation, his name synonymous with the futility of trying to reason with dictators and bullies. Yet, as this biography shows, there is more to this complex and intriguing character than is generally supposed, and even the infamous events of 1938 are open to more charitable interpretations than is usually the case. Appeasement brought the British government crucial time in which to rearm, and in particular allowed the RAF to drastically increase the number of fighter aircraft.

He records his thoughts on the place of the Christian in secular society, the role of churchman in politics, examines the basis of the Christian faith, the nature of prayer and the relationship between religion and contemporary society. He reflects on the great feasts of the Church, on Christian humanism, on hope and the ecummenical movement. R3. Fine/Very Good.
