Wes Streeting

October 13, 2023

Coming straight to Cheltenham from Labour’s conference in Liverpool, Wes Streeting joined me at Cheltenham Town Hall on Thursday afternoon to discuss his ‘memoir of growing up and getting on’. Wes took a packed audience through the book’s intriguing title ‘One Boy, Two Bills and a Fry-Up’, explaining that the ‘Two Bills’ were his maternal and paternal grandfathers and the ‘fry up’ represented his 18 year old mother’s determination not to have the abortion that everyone was urging upon her. Wes’s childhood could have been the plot of a novel rather than the life story of one of Britain’s most prominent and talented politicians.
