There is Centre in the UK that might need persuading, even if the awfulness of the last ten years ought to do that with ease. But, to be honest, he's clearly an accomplished writer too. Fluidly written, substantial and including plenty of clever insight into just what's wrong with these people, I laughed, I cried... Secret Tory is a Conservative,national treasure and service station enthusiast. They are purportedto be a sitting member of the UK Parliament and have been leaking reams of sensitive information from the heart of the Conservative government for the last three years.

Quite a funny book, you need to go into it understanding it’s nothing but a comedy so therefore it’s quite light hearted and silly.Henry Morris, revealed that he has been running the parody account that has amassed nearly 200,000 followers since it started in 2019. Satire is not supposed to be comfortable reading, and although this book is highly entertaining and made me laugh it does make one think too. It’s probably easier reading, and easier to laugh, if you are a left of centre reader but the book still makes one think about the state of politics and wonder why the British electorate has let this lot run the country. I look forward to the day when a Labour government at Westminster gets a similar treatment though that seems quite a while away. But there are many Conservative voters who might read this book and ponder where it all went wrong. Such an excoriating account would have been difficult to write even in the Cameron days, let alone the Major days.

Scabrous, scurrilous, hilarious and frighteningly plausible . Political satire at its blistering, biting best.’ – James O’Brien Mr Morris is a personal trainer and ultra-marathon runner living in Wales, and as you might have guessed from his account, he is staunchly anti-Tory. People had previously speculated that the person behind the account was a high-profile comedian or a real-life MP, but Morris is a personal trainer and ultra marathon runner from Yorkshire, who now lives in Wales. Morris, 40, grew up in Yorkshire, his mother a teacher, his father an archaeologist. “My dad is very clever, he has a lot of varied interests, both my parents have, which they seem to have passed on to me.” His father persuaded him to play Fleance in Macbeth when he was 12 with Abbey Shakespeare Players, technically an am-dram company but more of a hyper-literary cult, which introduced him to St Dogmaels Abbey in Wales, where the company stages its annual performance. He now lives in a Welsh valley that, according to folklore, is the entrance to the underworld. “It’s paradise,” he says. The 2019 Conservative MPs are mean-spirited, largely stupid and, as far as I can tell, firing up the shredders before they get booted out at the next election We had these baronesses, lords and millionaires coming in to the gym where I was a personal trainer.

He had faith that if he could make people laugh it would be popular, but not to the extent that it reached.

Mr Morris exposed his true identity in a two-minute parody skit that showed Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg attempting to catch and kill him.A review that makes this left if centre green want to read the book – but there is a chance that the bias within the first part of the review might put some people off. The parody account, which claimed to be piloted by an “anonymous Conservative MP”, is actually run by a man named Henry Morris, a personal trainer from Yorkshire who lives near Crymych in west Wales.

He told BBC News: “If people are feeling cheated I’m not a real MP, I’d like to say I’m sorry. But I’m not. It’s got a lot more to do with the behaviour of the people sitting in Westminster, than my skills as a con artist.” It took on a life of its own almost immediately, I remember people in the gym laughing about the account without knowing it was me, and it was very nice to have my hunch confirmed that I could make people laugh.” It started life named Mark ne Francois pas, a reference to Conservative MP Mark Francois, later changing its name to Michael Govern Ready (alluding to Michael Gove and the oven-ready Brexit deal) before ultimately becoming The Secret Tory.

The author, whoever he or she is (I’d guess it’s a he), has a grasp of some of the issues close to the heart of this blog. There is a wholly satirical account of grouse shooting and even a lord called Botham gets a short walk on part and exits after putting his foot in his mouth. How often does carbofuran get a mention in a book about the political world?
