Chris Mullin, festival favourite and author of the widely acclaimed memoir Hinterland and three volumes of diaries, returns to Durham to explore what happens when politics goes horribly wrong.

From the Poll Tax to Brexit, from Suez to Iraq, author, journalist and former Labour minister Chris Mullin discusses the great political disasters of the last century and the unintended consequences to which they gave rise. Iraq, for example, led –among many other things – to the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Labour Party…

Chris Mullin was MP for Sunderland South from 1987 to 2010. His novel A Very British Coup was made into an award-winning television series.
