Anthony Seldon has updated his magisterial survey:  The Impossible Office? The History of the British Prime Minister. Now it includes Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak. He discusses which of our prime ministers have been most effective and why. The book is also a celebration of the humanity, frailty, work and achievements of 57 remarkable individuals who averted revolution and civil war, leading the country through times of peace, crisis and war. ‘An intelligent and insightful guide’ said The Observer. ‘Chockful of fascinating history’ wrote The Daily Express. In conversation with Rory Bremner.
