In this title, Yes Minister meets Alan Clark. The third and final volume of Chris Mullin's acclaimed diaries begins on the night John Smit died in May 1994, and continues until the moment of Mullin's assumption into government in July 1999. Together with the bestselling A View from the Foothills and Decline & Fall , the complete trilogy covers the rise and fall of New Labour from start to finish. Witty, elegant and wickedly indiscreet, the Mullin diaries are widely reckoned to be the best account of the New Labour era. Every once in a while , wrote David Cameron, political diaries emerge that are so irreverent and insightful that they are destined to be handed out as leaving presents across Whitehall for years to come .

Table of Contents
'A treat to be savoured. Best of all they are written by a creature that the public does not believe exists: an honest politician at Westminster.' (Oona King, The Times) 'Hugely engaging... this trilogy has ensured that [Mullin] will join Chips Channon, Duff Cooper and Alan Clark in the pantheon of truly great diarists' (Matthew D'Ancona, Evening Standard) 'An open-minded chronicler whose eye for the absurd does not spare his leaders, colleagues or himself... [the diaries] give much pleasure.' (Brian Groom, Financial Times) 'Rich in human detail... it is uncany how many echoes there are of present-day politics... [Mullin should] have gone into some less shabby profession, but if he had, the Commons would have been a poorer place.' (David Robson, Telegraph)
