In the follow-up to his classic memoir, Things Can Only Get Better, John O’Farrell takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the last two decades of Labour.
Things Can Only Get Worse is the story of one political activist’s journey. Along the way, he stood for Parliament against Theresa May; was dropped from Tony and Cherie’s Christmas card list; and campaigned for a new nonselective inner-city state
school…before realising this meant he had to send his kids to a non-selective inner-city state school.
Things Can Only Get Worse is for everyone who could use a good laugh after Brexit, Boris and Trump.
