Johnny Mercer MP

Saturday 13th October 16:15 - 17:15 | Northwood House

Johnny talks about his journey from a troubled childhood, through to his reasons for joining the Army, finding his feet in the military and then finding his way from a successful military career into politics.

He tells of the very serious experiences and close combat fighting in Afghanistan and then moves onto the very comical and haphazard journey into politics, in a very honest, humble and brutal way.

If a speech can cover all the emotions from veterans’ mental health to running away from a stranger’s front door the first time you go canvassing for a political party, then this is it.

It is very funny, warm and uplifting – proving that honesty in politics isn’t quite dead!
