Michael Howard

Description

In this programme, former Conservative Party leader Michael Howard reflects on his days at school in South Wales.

The Member of Parliament for Folkestone & Hythe reveals how, as a young boy, he was regarded as a natural rebel in his Labour-dominated hometown of Llanelli.

He tells journalist Steve Richards about his preference for playing pool instead of doing school work and talks of his ambitions to make it big playing with his skiffle group. He also explains how his time at grammar school has influenced his views on education today. In addition, we learn of Howard's determination to attend Cambridge University and hear why his entry exam involved the essay, "Why I am an Angry Young Man?"
