    Jeremy Thorpe MOBI ì Kindle Edition jeremy book, thorpe free, Jeremy Thorpe PDFEPUBThis is a fascinating biography of a politician who 'fell like Lucifer' to pinch a uotation It describes his huge strengths and his eually huge weaknesses objectively and clearly For me Jeremy Thorpe was consistently on the side of the political angels but some of the financial short cuts he took are shocking His downfall through the agency of Norman Scott aided and abetted by such horrors as Peter Bessell and his own personal short comings is described in uite proper detail s

    Jeremy Thorpe MOBI ì Kindle Edition jeremy book, thorpe free, Jeremy Thorpe PDFEPUBIt is the biography that British political anoraks have long awaited and which sadly can now only be published as its subject is no Like Richard Nixon Jeremy Thorpe remains a fascinating if flawed figure to those who remember him long after many of his lauded contemporaries have passed into obscurityCharismatic saturnine ebullient suave Thorpe cut a raffish figure when compared to the grey serious safe men that were his fellow party leaders Wilson and HeathAfter being elected leader in 1967 Thorpe took the Liberal Party on a sometimes rocky electoral journey culminating in it gaining nigh on 20% of the popular vote in the general election of February 1974Bu

    Jeremy Thorpe MOBI ì Kindle Edition jeremy book, thorpe free, Jeremy Thorpe PDFEPUBA fascinating but overblown life in a fascinating but overblown book 550 pages could have been condensed to 400 odd pages and given a truer picture of the subject I retain a strong fondness for Jeremy Thorpe but this book needed severe editing

    Jeremy Thorpe MOBI ì Kindle Edition jeremy book, thorpe free, Jeremy Thorpe PDFEPUBOh dearthat was a slog It's taken me ages to read this book It's well written but at 555 pages just too long for me and lost my interest I enjoyed the chapters about his family background and his friends but there was so much politics to get through But I can hardly complain given Jeremy Thorpe’s leading role in politics for much of the 50s 60s and 70s I just found it hard work and with so many people involved with skulduggery going on left right and centre I couldn't keep up If I’d read it nearer to the time it happened I’d have been better off as I might have reme
