Sir Peter Bottomley MP, Conservative Party

In this July edition of the Politics of Sound, Iain Carnegie invites the longest-serving Member of Parliament and Father of the House of Commons, Sir Peter Bottomley to pay his own visit to the Politics of Sound virtual Record Shop to select his three all-time favourite albums.

Sir Peter emerges with an inspired and eclectic selection by Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, Dave Brubeck and Cecil Armstrong Gibbs and offers his fascinating insight into a life devoted to public service, his reasons for joining the Conservative Party (it nearly didn’t happen!), his take on the Coronavirus epidemic and much, much more!

Drinks and home-made cakes are generously served during the recording by his wife, Lady Virginia Bottomley!
