Village People: On political suicide

In the latest instalment of Village People, the series which investigates life in and around Westminster, Newsnight's David Grossman meets former Conservative Cabinet minister Norman Fowler.

Lord Fowler's book, A Political Suicide: The Conservatives' Voyage into the Wilderness, charts the decline and fall of the Major government in the 1990s, and is now reportedly being devoured by Labour MPs because of its parallels with the current political troubles of Gordon Brown's government.
