Coffee House Shots

Harold Wilson’s secret Downing Street affair

10 min listen

On this special Saturday edition of Coffee House Shots we discuss Patrick Maguire’s scoop this week about former Labour leader Harold Wilson’s secret affair with his deputy press secretary. Where does this rank in the history of parliamentary affairs? And – on a more serious note – are there any lessons that Keir Starmer can learn from Harold Wilson? 

Katy Balls speaks to Patrick Maguire and James Heale.
