About this title
Jo-Anne Nadler is a political journalist and a professional, metropolitan, style-conscious woman -- but she has one unfashionable allegiance. She is a Conservative. In recent years her affiliation has felt more like an affliction -- since coming out as a teenage Tory twenty years ago the Conservative Party has gone from Downing Street to disaster. So why persist? Fearlessly delving back through her own history of Young Conservative discos, bedroom posters of Mrs Thatcher and a career which has taken her from party activist to party worker to professional party observer, Jo-Anne explores the deep roots of her political convictions and her ambivalence about the behaviour of some of her Tory fellow-travellers. Funny and affectionate, balanced and passionate, TOO NICE TO BE A TORY reveals a great deal about the fate of the post-Thatcher party, and shows us just how much it still has to do to broaden its appeal.About the Author:
Jo-Anne Nadler is a writer and broadcaster who has worked for the BBC's ON THE RECORD, and is a frequent political commentator for network television and radio. She has contributed to a range of newspapers and magazines and is the author of IN HIS OWN RIGHT, a biography of former Conservative leader William Hague.
