    1. Pure Yes Minister, this political diary gives a fascinating insight into the sparring between a government minister in the Lords and his recalcitrant department MAFF Although hard to surpass his earlier Downing Street Diary, this journal establishes Bernard Donoughue among the foremost political diarists of his age What sets him apart from other diarists is the quality of his writing and the wisdom of his insights Highly recommended.
