House Music: The Oona King Diaries by Oona KingBloomsbury

Price: £8.99

She may have once been described as a Blair babe but Oona King is very much her own woman. House Music: The Oona King Diaries is a down to earth glimpse into the ugly world of politics. What is refreshing about Oona is that after ten years in politics she still comes across as the girl next door and that's what makes this such a good read. There's none of the usual stiffness often associated with political diaries, instead it is an honest account of a woman trying to make a difference against the odds.

What comes out of House Music: The Oona King Diaries is how much politics is about give and take and how sometimes the giving can involve having to watch your chance to make a change slip through your fingers and the taking often means biting your lip and putting up with beauraucratic crap just so you can keep your head above water. British politics is not for the faint hearted and how Oona managed to hold onto her sanity is a miracle in itself but to come out the other side and be able to write such an honest and frank account of it all shows us all how resiliant she is.

Oona put her heart into her political career and almost lost her home, her husband and the chance to have a child, in the end she lost the election in May 2005 to George Galloway and that was the best thing that could have happened to her.

We haven't seen the last of Oona King and we'd like to see her give Ken Livingstone a run for his money as the next Mayor of London, she'd certainly get our vote.

House Music: The Oona King Diaries by Oona King is available to buy now.
