Following his series of successful memoirs – This Boy, In My Life, The Long and Winding Road and Please, Mr Postman, former Labour MP Alan Johnson joins us to discuss his latest novel in the bestselling Mangan thriller series, Death on the Thames. His career in Parliament began after a period as General Secretary of the Communication Workers Union, when he was elected as Labour MP for Hull West and Hessle in 1997. He served as Home Secretary from June 2009 to May 2010. Before that, he filled a wide variety of cabinet positions in both the Blair and Brown governments, including Health Secretary and Education Secretary. Until 20 January 2011, he was Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer. Expect a lively discussion about his passion for writing, politics and, no doubt, views on the impending General Election.
