Whips and Whipping

  • Anthony King

In this programme we are going to talk about an unpopular group of men — a group of men who believe that what they do is seriously misunderstood by the public at large and even by some of their own colleagues — the two dozen or so party Whips in the House of Commons. We are going to look at them both as they seem to themselves — we talked to the Chief Whips of both of the major parties — and as they seem to those they whip — we talked to two backbench M.P.s who on occasion have defied their parties.
