Stanley Johnson

Sunday 14th October 10:30 - 11:30 | Northwood House

No one is better placed to write an of-the-moment satirical thriller than Stanley Johnson, former MEP, a passionate environmentalist and an author with a clutch of thrillers under his belt. He is also father of Boris Johnson. He maintains any resemblance the characters in Kompromat may have to real-life politicians is entirely coincidental. Spring 2016 to June 2017 was a time of seismic and unexpected political upheaval on both sides of the Atlantic. Who were the real actors in those events? Who was really behind them? And if we don’t know already, shouldn’t we be told? Kompromat: the Russian term for compromising materials about a politician or other public figure. In an era of fake news could Kompromat be the first fake book? Stanley Johnson is interviewed by Victoria Mather.
