Steven Gauge got into politics early in life, leading a small demo around his nursery-school playground. A local councillor at 23 and a parliamentary candidate by 30, he has been a winning election agent and toured the country by battle-bus with party leaders. Author of 'Political Wit' (also published by Summersdale), he now works in Westminster, advising businesses, charities and others on how to engage with their elected representatives and navigate through choppy political waters.
