In this edition of The Oldie Podcast, Harry Bucknall talks to The Right Honourable Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, 158th Speaker of the House of Commons, whose role is delivering the daily business of politics. It is he who has to restore the reputation and traditional values expected of those we elect to represent us and it is he who has to ensure that MPs can go about their daily business unhindered, safe in the knowledge that they do so without risk from the unwanted and unwarranted attention of those remote elements of society intent on spreading malice, causing harm and even death.

In this edition of The Oldie Podcast, Harry Bucknall is joined by Emma Soames, Mary’s daughter, who edited the diaries.
