His explosive insider memoir Power Trip was hailed as the must-read of 2013, making The Thick of It look tame, and now Damian McBride is back with more razor-sharp observations taken from his widely acclaimed blog. The former spin-doctor, a pivotal but notorious figure in the New Labour government, has since become one of the most sought-after commentators on all things political – and it’s easy to see why. McBride’s musings provide frank and fascinating accounts of the functions (or dysfunctions) of the political machine, and the peculiar machinations of its operators. Now, in Omnirambles, they are brought together for the first time in one collection. Delivered with the same no-holds-barred acuity and inimitable wit present in his debut bestseller, McBride once again proves himself to be one of today’s most controversial and incisive political voices.
