Descripción editorial

The unmissable final instalment of Tim Shipman’s #1 bestselling Brexit trilogy.

How did Boris Johnson supersede Theresa May to become Britain’s Prime Minister? How did he pursue his promise to Get Brexit Done amidst multiple Brexit secretaries, repeated coup attempts and reshuffles, and an extraordinarily terse relationship with Brussels? What really happened in Downing Street – from the political choices to the party place settings – as the pandemic took the world in its grip?

To follow his bestselling books All Out War and Fall Out, this book launches off from 2017 to offer an unflinching, unfiltered account of unprecedented times.

In the company of all the key players and with countless never-before-revealed insights, this book traces our political moment from May’s resignation through to the tussles over the final Brexit deal and the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is the ultimate insider narrative to the last five years of government, revealing the strategies, gambles, mistakes, mindsets and scandals that have shaped and shaken Britain.

As always, political insider and Chief Political Commentator for the Sunday Times Tim Shipman unleashes a slew of insight – and gossip – to reveal the democratic drama as it really happened.


Praise for Fall Out

'The doyen of … high-class gossip is … Shipman, whose All Out War was last year’s bestselling guide to the referendum campaign. Its sequel takes up where that left off … Shipman’s books are fast becoming classics … It’s testament to the rigour of [his] research that the book doesn’t feel dated despite the speed at which events at Westminster have moved since it went to press' Gaby Hinsliff, Guardian

‘This extraordinary book … reads like a roaring farce … jam-packed with fresh, illuminating details … Shipman’s writing has admirable clarity and drive … For anyone who wants to relive the past year… this book is a must’ Craig Brown, Mail On Sunday

‘All Out War was the best political book published … last year … its triumphant sequel … is even better’ Alex Massie, Spectator

‘Gripping … If journalism is the "first rough draft" of history, then Shipman is the master of the second, tidied up, version of events … A mixture of political thriller, psychological analysis and campaign diary, this is a page-turner for anyone interested in politics’ Rachel Sylvester, The Times

‘Readers who enjoyed the lucid prose and unrivalled access that made the first book such a treat will love its sequel’ New Statesman

‘Shipman … a major-domo with a notebook in his waistcoat pocket … bends over backwards to be fair … It is crammed with detailed description and the transcribed thoughts of those who were there when the key decisions were taken’ Andrew Marr, Sunday Times

‘Excellent … engrossing … a witty phrase-maker … Shipman does a fine job of making sense of the period since the Brexit referendum … illuminating’ Andrew Rawnsley, Observer
