In Conversation with... Ep 4: Phil Wilson

Updated: Dec 5, 2020

Hi everyone! We hope you are having a lovely December amidst a pretty drab situation.


We've another podcast and this one is our longest and most frank discussion yet. It's with Phil Wilson, most recently Member of Parliament for Sedgefield until 2019 but previously part of Tony Blair's inner circle. We chat about Blair's rise (and demise), recent national events in politics and the memories of his time in the highest echelons of government.


I also get pretty frank about my experience with New Labour, and how my personal experience was impacted by the policies and how it impacted my childhood. This is well worth a listen with a man with many a fascinating tale.


Phil has also recently written a piece for the site on his family history, which will be published in due course.
