Author(s): Peter Dunne
The stunning result of the 2002 election saw Peter Dunne return to Parliament with seven other United Future MPs. In this follow-up to Home Is Where My Heart Is, Dunne takes the reader behind the scenes of this remarkable success and looks at where it all began, from the formation on his United Future party, its race for the polls and the subsequent success that took many commentators by surprise. Dunne explains his United Future's philosophies, and gives an inside view of the economic and social turmoil of the Rogernomics period, the upheavals of the Ruth Richardson years, and the ebbs and flows of the political tides that followed the adoption of MMP.
This is a story told by one of Parliament's most experienced politicians.
It's a story you don't want to miss.
