They've recently become embroiled in scandals concerning sexual harassment and expenses.

Every year, they introduce new legislation that doesn't do what it sets out to achieve - often with terrible financial and human costs.

But, with some notable exceptions, they are decent, hard-working people, doing a hugely difficult and demanding job.

In this searching examination of our political class, award-winning journalist Isabel Hardman tries to square this circle.

She lifts the lid on the strange world of Westminster and asks why we end up with representatives with whom we are so unhappy.

Filled with forensic analysis and revealing reportage, this landmark and accessible book is a must read for anyone who wants to see a future with better government.
