Part memoir, part behind-the-scenes insider view, ‘Politically Homeless’ is a fascinating and funny book for anyone who loves politics but hates the time we find ourselves in. Matt Forde has been obsessed with politics since he was 9 years old. Raised by a single mum on benefits in inner city Nottingham, as soon as he could he joined the Socialist Workers Party, foisted issues of ‘Marxism Today’ on innocent bystanders and by the time he was 14 had attended his first political party conference. From then on, despite some interesting blips including chatting to the Prime Minister at Number 10 while badly drunk, Matt’s whole future looked wedded to the Labour Party as he started working for MPs in dingy back rooms somewhere in Nottinghamshire. But then things started to change. Not only was Labour starting to fall apart, but so was Matt’s love of politics.
