With her is David Young, drafted in to help run it- and who decided to keep an audio diary during the months he spent doing so, which has now been published. Tune in to listen to him chat about politics today, the dangers of social media and how to get a seat in the cabinet without signing up to a political party...

A White House state dinner honors a visiting head of government or reigning monarch and is one of the grandest and most glamorous of White House affairs. It is part of an official state visit and provides the president and first lady the opportunity to honor the visiting head of state and his or her spouse. It is a courtesy—an expression of goodwill—a way of extending hospitality. It brings to mind the tradition of breaking bread with friends to seal a friendship. It is an event that also showcases global power and influence. The traditional toasts exchanged by the two leaders at the dinner offer an important and appropriate platform for the continuation of the serious dialogue that has taken place earlier in the day. Let’s now listen to the Toasts of President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher at the first State Dinner, on February 26, 1981.
The Tory Right from Enoch Powell to Margaret Thatcher: 1957-1979
In the years following the Conservative Party's defeat in the 1945 general election, the Tories were forced to accept significant parts of Labour's programme, recognising their un-electability otherwise. A right wing fringe of the party rejected this centre ground compromise and demanded an extreme brand of supply side economics known as monetarism. The opportunity to impose this on the party and later the country emerged in the crisis years of the 1970s. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ctrl Alt Delete
This is reply of my episode with the wonderful Gillian Anderson! You might remember my episode from two years ago when Gillian came on the podcast as a guest with her friend and co-author Jennifer Nadel; they wrote the bestselling book We: The uplifting manual for women seeking happiness.Today, Gillian is back in the Ctrl Alt Delete studio.Stay tuned for the second half of this episode to hear about Gillian in THE CROWN where she will join the cast in season 4 as UK Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher and SEX EDUCATION, Gillian has also collaborated with WINSER. After a successful first collection last Autumn, she has collaborated again with Winser London’s design team again to create her second womenswear capsule collection for the brand, which includes a unique fundraiser jumper featuring a design of her lips with 20 percent of sales going o Gillian's chosen charity, @womenforwomen which helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives. Gillian’s collection is now live online at winserlondon.com.We spoke about turning fan art into charity merchandise, dipping a toe into another industry, trying new things, being a homebody, how TV has changed since the 90s, mental health anxiety, living with chronic pain and the joy of being in bed by 9. I love this quote from the episode:'It should be become so natural for people to talk freely [about mental health] without it making headlines. It's still in the press slightly mocked in headlining it. Ultimately, it should be discussed as easily as what we eat for breakfast. The majority of human beings on this planet do struggle with some form of fear, anxiety, depression and there are constant contributors in our world that are making those numbers grow." I hope you enjoy this episode, I absolutely loved recording it!See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
