We are delighted to welcome Chris Mullin to Ely, to celebrate the publication of his latest collection of diaries. Mullin’s bestselling A View From the Foothills provided a riveting insider’s account of life as a junior minister, laying bare the personalities, pyrotechnics and political intrigues of the Blair years. Funny and self-deprecating, the new diaries run from his sacking by Blair as a minister after the 2005 elections to Election Day 2010 as he prepares to step down after 23 years as an MP, wryly observing, “they say failed politicians make the best diarists, in which case I am in with a chance”.
