About this deal

Who have so much struggle going on in their own lives that the thought of getting involved in politics seems overwhelming, or frankly pointless when the liars, chancers and charlatans seem to get away with so much. If your life or anyone you know has been touched by alcoholism, there is only one Bob, just as there is only one Bill. PV’s argument was that while the 2016 referendum had yielded a narrow win for those seeking to leave the EU, now that it was becoming clearer what Brexit meant in practice, and apparent that major constitutional change was involved, there should be a referendum to confirm that the country was happy with the eventual deal.

He put Downing Street briefings on record for the first time, and although he was only identified as "The Prime Minister's Official Spokesman", he became one of the most high-profile and written about figures in British politics, earning the epithet "the real deputy Prime Minister".

His university education included a year in France when he had his first ‘journalism’ published, articles on sex in Forum magazine. In July 2007, he published his first book on his time with Tony Blair, The Blair Years, extracts from his diaries from 1994 to 2003, which was an instant Sunday Times Number 1 bestseller.There's a wide range of free online learning on the OU’s site OpenLearn, including the short courses Writing what you know, Start writing fiction, and the OpenLearn Scotland Hub of resources on our nation's history, society and culture.
