“I’m glad Margaret has decided to fill some of the silence David left when he wrote less about her than he wanted to. That she has done it with such clarity, wit and wry insight is both a tribute to her subject and a very valuable contribution to our understanding of the recent political past.”
Finlay Macdonald, broadcaster and reviewer, former editor of The Listener and commissioning editor for Penguin Books

"But it was very very bitter, and it was very personal. And I suggest you read Margaret Pope's book if you really want to know what happened at this time."
Mike Williams, former Labour Party president on TVOne's Q&A with Paul Holmes, Sunday 2 October 2011
