From the cover: “Richard Needham, twice elected MP for Chippenham (now called North Wiltshire), has now produced that rarest of commodities, a book which not only gives a thorough guide to the workings of Parliament but does so in a style which is informative, humorous and entertaining. With the aid of his characters Pringle and Daphne Dempster, a couple of young hopefuls aspiring to success in the political arena, he explores the life and work of an MP. How does he get selected by a Party? How does he fight an election? The anecdotes about canvassing during election time are mainly taken from actual incidents and provide hilarious reading.
