I’m Derek Conway and I hope you’ll join me for this week’s Epilogue – PressTV’s book show, when I’ll be reviewing “The Third Man: Life at the Heart of New Labour”, Lord Peter Mandelson’s autobiography and an expose of Prime Minister Blair’s inner circle.

I’ve known the author for over twenty-five years and when he wishes to be, or when it suits his purpose, he is very charming…..but beneath that veneer of affability lurks a personality given to intrigue, plotting and treachery.

Was Blair a competent leader or a spot-light seeking lightweight; enthralled by Bush and American evangelical ambitions– join me on Epilogue and we’ll see if Mandelson’s revelations help us understand just how the most disastrous British government in recent memory came to be.
