An Intimate Portrait of Harold Wilson. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Ernest Kay writes vividly of the Wilson family at their annual holiday retreat in the Isles of Scilly (to which he and his wife first introduced them). He tells of Wilson, during the battle for the Labour leadership, coming back late at night to his Hampstead home and totting up the voting forecast from figures in his diary. He shows us the Premier who prefers beer to wine, cider to champagne, fish and chips to Lobster Newburg, tea to coffee; who scorns expense account lunches; who adores fish fingers; who, pragmatic in all things, could once drink his gin and orange from a flower vase.”
