Steve Richards loves political leaders; what makes them tick, and what makes them so unique. Having been a political correspondent for the BBC, then Political Editor for the New Statesman, Steve turned his hand to television to present more insight into the leaders who shape our country. His 2018 series for BBC Parliament, The Prime Ministers We Never Had, looked more closely at the runners-up of our country’s history; from Tony Benn to Neil Kinnock to Ed Milliband.
From globalisation to fake news to rising immigration to stagnant wages, the global political landscape has shifted rapidly in recent times. At a time of immense and unprecedented political upheaval, seasoned political commentator and author of the landmark political book The Outsiders Steve Richards sheds new light on the nine tenants of 10 Downing St over the past 50 years, and what that has meant for us. With unprecedented access and in-depth interviews, Richards offers some essential insight into the chaotic political times in which we live.
