'A terrific account of the surreal 2017 campaign in Wales with great access to the main players.' - Huw Edwards
'Nothing has changed' is what Theresa May repeatedly said at the Welsh Conservative manifesto launch in Gresford when she was accused of a U-turn during the election campaign of 2017. In fact, it was a campaign in which everything was changing: the fortunes of the political parties and their leaders along with the certainties of those involved in politics or watching it.
In his role as Political Editor for ITV Cymru Wales, Adrian Masters was there for that pivotal moment at Gresford and at the other crucial points throughout the campaign. His unrivaled experience, access to insiders, and many contacts with people at all levels in all parties give him a privileged vantage point. This is the account of a unique eye-witness to an extraordinary moment in political history.
Adrian Masters is the Political Editor of ITV Cymru Wales. He presents the weekly political programme, Sharp End, and hosts live leaders' debates and election coverage. In recent years, he's also become an unlikely TV chef with the programme Adrian's Welsh Bites in which he makes a meal with the person that he's interviewing. He has twenty-five years' experience as a broadcast journalist and has been a reporter and presenter in both radio and television.
