She is a Conservative. In recent years her affiliation has felt more like an affliction -- since coming out as a teenage Tory twenty years ago the Conservative Party has gone from Downing Street to disaster. So why persist? Fearlessly delving back through her own history of Young Conservative discos, bedroom posters of Mrs Thatcher and a career which has taken her from party activist to party worker to professional party observer, Jo-Anne explores the deep roots of her political convictions and her ambivalence about the behaviour of some of her Tory fellow-travellers. Funny and affectionate, balanced and passionate, TOO NICE TO BE A TORY reveals a great deal about the fate of the post-Thatcher party, and shows us just how much it still has to do to broaden its appeal.
