Wantage Literary Festival Event: Lord David Owen
Lord David Owen Hubris – The Road to Donald Trump: Power, Populism, Narcissism
Lord David Owen has been a part of the British political landscape for more than half a century.
A former hospital registrar in neurology and psychiatry, he became Britain’s youngest Foreign Secretary since Anthony Eden. He went on to cause a seismic shift in British politics in 1981 when he helped found the SDP, the political party he went on to lead from 1983 to 1987.
His experience in both politics and medicine makes him uniquely qualified to analyse the physical and mental condition of leaders in both America and Britain, past and present.
Not to be missed.
