Peter Mandelson reviews a book about the 2015 election

An interesting review in the Indy by New Labour's "Prince of Darkness" of Philip Cowley and Dennis Kavanagh’s book "The British General Election of 2015." You can read the review here.

Lord Mandelson says that he wanted Labour to win, and it may even be true, though his review is fairly damning of Ed Miliband. However the final words of the review, while praising the book, are even more damning of his successor:

"Labour has more to learn than anyone else from this thorough and detailed account of what happened in 2015. What a shame that it will need to wait for a very different set of leaders to do so."
