Fiery and forthright, Dennis Skinner is one of the best-known politicians in Britain. He has watched Prime Ministers come and go, and yet remains uncorrupted by patronage and compromise. Skinner at eighty has a unique take on post-war Britain. A combatant in the great social, industrial and political upheavals of the last half century, he's resisted telling his extraordinary story. Until now.
