Britain is at its most dangerous juncture since Harry's youth - the NHS and social housing are in crisis, whilst Brexit and an unpopular government continue to divide the country - but there is hope. Just as Clement Attlee provided hope in 1945, Labour's triumphant comeback of June 2017 is a beacon of light in this season of discontent.
Britain has overcome adversity before and will do so again - a new nation will be forged from the ashes of grave injustice.
Moving and passionate, Don't Let My Past Be Your Future interweaves memoir and polemic in a call to arms. Above all, this book is a homage to the boundless grace and resilience of the human spirit.

Any additional comments?
I'm not as old as the author (57 as opposed to 94) but his recollections of the more recent past from the 70s onward match my own closely and for this reason i trust the integrity of his narrative, and also very much endorse his conclusions and urgent appeal for political engagement from the younger demographic sectors.
