5 Days to Power The Journey to Coalition Britain
By Rob Wilson
With unique access to key figures involved from all three political parties Rob Wilson MP tells the story of the coalition talks in a manner and depth in which it has not been told before. In 5 Days to Power Rob Wilson sheds further light and answers questions to which the negotiators themselves would have dearly loved to know the answers, including:
• Which concessions were necessary to persuade the other party to agree to a full coalition?
• What was Labour offering in their bid to stay in power, and could they have delivered?
• What was said in the one-to-one meetings between the party leaders?
• When was the Liberal Democrat decision to do the deal with the Conservatives actually taken?
5 Days to Power gives the first full account of the negotiations that led to the political earthquake of a Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government.Read a sample
