'With his DIARIES, he has written himself into the life of our times with a panache and candour that ranks him next to Boswell or Pepys' THE TIMES The first two volumes of Alan Clark's were irresistible, irreverent, infamous, outrageous. This last volume is a fitting finale to the work of a man who has been described as 'the best diarist of his century'. The third volume begins in 1991 with Alan Clark contemplating quitting as an MP. Life at Saltwood Castle, his home, hangs heavy; then comes the Scott inquiry and the Matrix Churchill affair. Publication of the first volume of the Diaries leads 'the coven', a family of former girlfriends, to sell their story to the NEWS OF THE WORLD. This volume follows his attempts to return to Westminster, an affair that threatens his marriage, and closes with the tragedy of his final months when he is diagnosed with a brain tumour, but keeps his diary until he can no longer focus on the page.... in Rolls-Royce and Bentley Scott Moncrieff a purveyors and restorers of classic cars The Discovery a Land Rover Big Red a S-type Bentley Continental, number plate AC1800 Hen 3-litre a Bentley New Bing a Bentley Continental S1 manualanbsp;...
