The Greasy Poll

Mike Parker  Other books by Mike Parker

In the normally sedate rural constituency of Ceredigion, the general election of 2015 exploded into sensationalist headlines and the dirtiest campaign in living memory. At the centre of the fray was Plaid Cymru's Englishborn candidate, author Mike Parker. The Greasy Poll is Mike's witheringly honest diary of the campaign, in which he charts the exhilaration and exhaustion of this knife-edge fight. All parties say that they want more 'real people' in politics, but Mike's experience perhaps suggests otherwise. From the perils of social media to the drumbeat rise of neo-fascism, The Greasy Poll details the splits, sags and soggy compromises of modern Welsh politics, and how badly it is failing us.
