The Rivals by James Naughtie

James (Today Programme) Naughtie’s The Rivals isn’t as easy a read as Andrew Rawnsley’s Servants of the People, but was well worth the read.
It consider’s Blair and Brown’s relationship since Labour came to power in 1997, and despite being a little on the heavy side, definitely gets under the skin of the problem – that Brown feels he should become PM at some point, and believes that Blair promised this to him before Labour came to power. Recommended.
