Raymond Newell – Johnson at 10

Tickets £11/£9



The premiership of Boris Johnson is one of the most controversial in the 300 years of the office. Visionary or self-server? Remarkable leader or utter incompetent? Courageous, chameleon or charlatan? Based on more than 200 interviews with key aides, allies and insiders, Johnson at 10: The Inside Story gives the first full account of the BoJo premiership, the shockwaves of which are still being felt today. From the heady, hubris-filled days of July 2019 to the nerve-shredding collapse in confidence just three years later, this is the authoritative account of the most turbulent time in British politics in almost a century.

Chaired by Richard Moss




‘Johnson at 10 is rich with first-hand accounts of those who saw him at work – and are still trying to process what happened.’ – Financial Times
