First Confession: A Sort of Memoir

With Chris Patten

24 November 2017

With Chris Patten

With Chris Patten

Overview

MP for Bath from 1979-1992, Chris Patten's career has also taken him from the outer London suburbs to the House of Commons, last Governor of Hong Kong, Chairman of the BBC and Chancellor of Oxford University. About all of these he is enlightening and entertaining in this new autobigraphical work. He has unexpected and telling things to say about the three Prime Ministers for whom he worked - Edward Heath, Margaret Thatcher and John Major and about his political heroes, Baldwin, Macmillan and Butler.

Wise, funny and opinionated, First Confession is a different sort of memoir, a meditation on personal and political identity which, in an age of simplification, reminds us of the complexities of both.

 

 

LUNCH: Beef Marsala curry, stir-fried vegetables, Basmati rice; blueberry almond tart; coffee V: Butternut squash risotto with roasted pumpkin seeds and parmesan shapes
