“Wondering When It Might Be My Turn…..I am delighted to be part of this important project”

Greg Mulholland 16th December 2021

Greg Mulholland has had a busy life and gives us an insight into what it’s like to be elected to Parliament as an MP and a member of the Liberal Democrat Party. Greg also shares with us the effects of losing his seat after 12 years representing his constituency. 

Greg speaks passionately about the corporate assault on the English pub which is surprisingly prevalent during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Music, song writing and performing rank as high in Greg’s life as politics, maybe even higher.

Discover what is Munro-Bagging, the Lyke Wake Walk and the ‘Hundred’ (a hundred-mile challenge walk) and top this off with some very interesting observations about Coronavirus and Brexit all recorded in 2020.

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.
