Who would have thought representing people in difficulty was fun? Who would have thought union meetings were fun? Read the book and you may just change your mind.The book is about giving people a laugh that does not exist as much in workplaces in these competitive days and hopefully this book will give happy memories to some people and highlight to others that being a trade union activist in the 1980s 90s and the new millenium was fun as well as being rewarding.
