Michael Portillo 'Life: a game of two halves' on Friday 18th January 2019
It took Michael Portillo little more than 10 years to get a seat in the Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was a favoured leader of his party and possible future PM.
Although his political career then came to a humiliating end, losing his seat in May 1997, Michael has since reinvented and endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for the solid workmanship found in the great railways of the world, the effect of the railways on the history of countries and the daily lives of their people.
Listen to his story, told with a “parliamentary standup” wit, and then feel free to question him about it. Followed by a book signing.
