Black ties; cigar smoke; whisky in cut glass. Westminster runs the country, but the Whips run Westminster. It?s a week before Christmas, and the new Tory government is facing dissent over its latest Bill. With a majority of only three, the Whips? office is out in full force, and they?ll stop at nothing to keep the strays in line. But they?re in for a long night: boy scouts are rioting in Whitehall, the PM?s golfing with the President, five Tory rebels are on the loose and the Chief Whip?s playing at Santa ? could this be the beginnings of a leadership challenge.
The scandalously funny Whipping It Up blows the lid off the Despatch box and reveals the true secrets locked in the Whips? safe. In the year of a General Election and without a word about EXPENSES this play is not to be missed.
