The year that led up to 7 May 2015 determined not just who governed Britain but the future of the country itself.
Night after night Nick Robinson wrote in his private notebook what he saw and heard and thought after a day spent broadcasting from the campaign trail and the House of Commons, or interviewing the nation’s political leaders. It records his insider’s view of the extraordinary events he reported on day after day to millions of viewers and listeners.
This was a year in which Nick asked David Cameron why he spent more on a dinner than the amount he was cutting from a family’s annual tax credits; Ed Miliband whether he saw a prime minister when looked in the mirror; Nigel Farage why he employed his German wife and not a Brit to be his taxpayer-funded secretary and Alex Salmond why people should trust him and not businessmen. It was a year in which the BBC sometimes found itself dragged into the fight.
This is a story not just of a battle for power but of the bare-knuckle fight between the established parties and UKIP, the SNP, the Greens and others to break the hold on power of the big three and the historic battle over Scottish independence and Britain’s membership of the EU.
Nick Robinson’s Election Notebook is filled with insight, analysis and behind the scenes gossip during an adrenalin-fuelled year.Biografía del autor:
