Unique memoir providing a rare insight into how the UK Parliament really works

About the Book:

Bill Proctor worked in the House of Commons for thirty-six years at the latter end of the last century.  In this book, Bill describes the generally happy and fruitful, but occasionally fragile, relationship between the professionally neutral Officers of the House of Commons and their properly partisan Members, an account which involves many hundreds of hearings, and many scores of reports, but also much travel in Europe, as well as chasing revolutionaries in the Caribbean, resisting the charms of hookers from Arusha to Boston, strap-hanging by air to Hanoi, pushing wheelchairs across Manhattan, consuming much of the KGB's company vodka, and carrying birthday cards across the green line in Cyprus.

This memoir is a cracking tale of life and work in the House of Commons at the latter end of the last century: MPs at their individual and collective best (and occasionally at their worst) in Westminster and around the world.  This is a rare insight into Parliament behind the cameras.

About the Author:

Bill Proctor is the son of a Viking from Lincolnshire and the umpteenth daughter of a
From the age of thirteen he spent his spare time in Silver Street as a copy boy and eventually cub reporter on the Bristol Evening Post of blessed memory, where for a number of summers he reigned supreme as Golden Wedding and Flower Show King. After graduation, he taught politics at Manchester University, but most of his working life was spent in Westminster. He attempted to write a novel based on his experiences in Grenada, but the draft was destroyed by exploding cartons of long-life orange. Bill retired in 2004 as Clerk of the Journals. He has a remarkably patient wife.  They have lived in Chislehurst, Kent, for the last fifty years, but sometimes wonder why.
