Michael Portillo – Life a Game of Two Halves
Sunday 1 February 2015, The Atkinson – Theatre
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 to many a privileged friend of the rich and famous with little or no understanding of or care for the ordinary citizen. 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 toil of the working man, as well as the underprivileged (Michael becomes a Single Mum 2003)and the troubled (Death of a school friend 2002) .
Listen to his extraordinary story and then feel free to question him about it.
