Overview

Who Goes Home? A Parliamentary Miscellany is a wonderful collection of parliamentary wit and insult; of bizarre and hilarious stories; of odd and surprising facts about Parliament; and explanations of the impenetrable mysteries of a Gothic fantasy palace on the banks of the Thames. Robert Rogers is an expert but irreverent guide through Westminster's turbulent centuries. Kings and commoners, the great and the not-sogood, statesmen and headsmen share the pages with withering insults, wit and laughter, and an extraordinary cast of characters, from Charles I to Churchill. Who resorted to duel rather than debate? What are the best heckles? What are the dangers of asking one too many questions when canvassing? How does a minister know when disaster threatens? How do you decode political statements? Like its predecessor Order! Order!, this rich seam of parliamentary insight will entertain as well as fascinate.
