A Parliamentary Affair book.
A Parliamentary Affair. Elaine Stalker, newly elected MP, has worked hard for her election to Westminster.
How am I supposed to get a souvenir, to gaze on for the rest of my life in nostalgic adoration, if you keep fooling around?’. that first night in Amsterdam. His jawline had put on more bone; the babyishness had gone. A charming light-brown moustache, grown after Davos to avoid shaving windbitten skin, now graced the upper lip. The hair was still wispily blond, though Nigel had grumbled about a bottle of hair-lightener left carelessly in the upstairs bathroom.
A Parliamentary Affair - Edwina Currie. Edwina Currie, London, February 1994. At the time of writing A Parliamentary Affair, homosexual acts, involving consenting males under twenty-one years of age were illegal in the UK. On 21 February 1994 the House of Commons voted to reduce the age of consent for gay sex to eighteen.
Edwina Currie is a former Government minister and for fourteen years was the well-known Member of Parliament for Derbyshire South. She is now a successful broadcaster (BBC Radio 5's Late Night Currie) and novelist. Well I certainly never thought that I would ever have an interest in the goings on of EDWINA AND PAL, but I must confess. It is five years since I attended church. Who can you rely on these days. I tell you the country is going to the dogs. The book makes the startling revelation,that conservative M P s chose to ignore there leaders advise,and vote themselves a substantial pay rise.

Edwina Currie (née Cohen; born 13 October 1946) is a British former politician, serving as Conservative Party Member of Parliament from 1983 until 1997. She was a Junior Health Minister for two years, resigning in 1988 during the salmonella-in-eggs controversy. By the time Currie lost her seat as an MP in 1997, she had begun a new career as a novelist and broadcaster. She is the author of six novels, and has also written four works of non fiction.
Edwina Currie's first novel is set amid the heady atmosphere of Westminster and charts the progress of four ambitious Tory MPs from 1992 onwards as they find themselves in a confusion of political and sexual intrigue. Her previous books are "Life Lines", "What Women Want", and "Three-Line Quips". Format Hardback 448 pages.
A Parliamentary Affair will hugely enrich its author, but this is the least offensive thing about it. Edwina Currie is welcome to her money, and in one sense deserves it. Her book is original to the extent that it plumbs a new depth. It is not gripping by any means (the climactic IRA bomb blast bears all the hallmarks of an explosive melodrama tacked on at the last minute), but on every page there is something new to make us wince.
