About this title


This is the story behind the five-week Tatton campaign during the 1997 British General Election in which journalist Martin Bell unseated Neil Hamilton. The author was in Tatton throughout the campaign. He was given full access to the Bell camp, and followed the Hamiltons wherever they went, developing a hate-hate relationship with Neil and a love-hate relationship with his wife Christine. On one occasion, Sweeney was thrown out of Tory meetings, winked at by Christine, singled out for excoriation in Hamilton's speeches, confided in by dissident Tories and there for the end, the moment of Hamilton's exit, at 3 am on May 2nd. The book covers the rise and fall of the Hamiltons, and of Mr Bell going to Westminster. John Sweeney is the author of "The Lives and Evil Times of Nikolai Ceauscescu" and "Trading with the Enemy: How Britain Armed Iraq".
