Michael Portillo

Michael Portillo


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. A track record like that suggests a privileged friend of the rich and famous, but since leaving the house almost a decade ago Michael has endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for solid workmanship as found in our great Victorian Railways and the daily life of ordinary citizens.A historian at heart, listen to his extraordinary story and then feel free to question him about it. Presented by Sympathetic Development.
