A brilliant follow-up to the Stephen Leacock Award-winner The Best Laid Plans, this deeply funny satire continues the story of Honest Angus McLintock, an amateur politician who dares to do the unthinkable: tell the truth. Just when Daniel Addison thinks he can escape his job as a political aide, Angus McLintock, the no-hope candidate he helped into Parliament, throws icy cold water over his plans. Angus has just brought down the government with a deciding vote. Now the crusty Scot wants Daniel to manage his next campaign. Soon Daniel is helping Angus fight an uphill battle against "Flamethrower" Fox, a Conservative notorious for his dirty tactics. Together they decide to take "The High Road" and — against all odds — turn the race into a nail-biter with hilarious ups and downs, cookie-throwing seniors, and even a Watergate-style break-in. But that's only the beginning. Add a political storm in the capital and a side-splitting visit from the U.S. President and his alcoholic wife, and Terry Fallis's second novel is a wildly entertaining story full of deft political satire and laugh-out-loud comedy.

NorthPod Law is a podcast that reviews the week's legal stories and news with a particular focus on how they affect the legal profession and the justice system of England & Wales. This show runs for six weeks and then takes a six week break throughout the year. It is hosted by barristers Benjamin Knight, Kirstin Beswick and Jonathan Holt. Each week, they will be joined by other lawyers and legal experts and, together, they will cast an eye over that week's legal twists and turns. ** Note to broadcast media producers: Our presenters are available for comment on legal matters in the public eye by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org - this address is monitored 24/7 ** When Northpod Law is off the air, this feed automatically redirects to Northpod's sister show, the UK Criminal Law Blog Podcast. UK Criminal Law Blog Podcast UKCLBP is a podcast by Dan, Lyndon and Sara - barristers who run the UK Criminal Law Blog. The podcast discusses and explains current cases and topics relevant to the criminal law, in language accessible to those not legally trained. Far too often the media don’t get the facts right about criminal cases meaning that far too often do the public not understand the 'how' and 'why'. We’re three barristers who are trying to change that by discussing current cases and topics in everyday English, to make the law more accessible to all. Our long-standing and well-respected blog can be found at www.ukcriminallawblog.com
