Nicholas Jones, author and former BBC political correspondent, returned to Wolverhampton and his old school Tettenhall College in September to speak to a crowd about his career in journalism.
Sixth former Danica Perrin says, “Mr Jones’ inspiring and entertaining lecture gave us all a vivid idea of British politics in the eyes of a journalist. He shared impressive insights from his meetings with former prime ministers and his role in the leaking of then PM John Major’s private words regarding British soldiers fighting in the Gulf War. He spoke of his four-hour long car drive from North Wales to London with the mineworkers’ president Arthur Scargill, and how that shaped his understanding of the leader.”
