Witty, politically indiscreet and a wonderful contrast to working for Maggie. What do you do when you lose your job at 41? Start a bar or restaurant? That might be near the top of many people's wish list: not many go through with it. But that is exactly what one-time Treasury minister Phillip Oppenheim did when he lost his precariously marginal seat in the Great Wipe Out of '97 - and began a voyage which took him from Maggie to Margaritas, from the baroque towers of HM Treasury to the rococo churches and bars of Havana - and on to a derelict site in London's Waterloo where he founded Cubana, a Cuban bar with Fidel Castro as a shareholder. The sometimes hilarious, often poignant story echoes Havana's own decline from past glories to making a living catering for Western tourists. The narrative is peppered with anecdotes and cameos from Oppenheim's days at the House of Commons, kicking off with Geoff Hoon. An insightful and funny Cuba travelogue forms one part of the book.
