Among the scandals and scoundrels of Westminster, David Taylor was a shining light: respected and admired by his constituents, his parliamentary colleagues and his political opponents alike. The shock and sadness of his sudden and untimely death in 2009 reverberated well beyond Westminster. A unique parliamentary craftsman, master of the telling question and fiercely loyal to his constituents, Taylor was a man ever undaunted by executive power as he pursued his many causes. In Clockwinder Who Wouldn’t Say No, Paul Flynn paints an affectionate portrait of a supremely resourceful backbencher influenced by the strong work ethic and values of his childhood, and questions the effects of the expenses scandal on this most diligent of MPs. This sensitive and insightful biography is a fitting testament to a much-loved man and an exemplary parliamentarian.
