Description

Is being Prime Minister of the United Kingdom a job you would really want?

Sir Anthony Seldon, author of The Impossible Office?: The History of the British Prime Minister, joins Peter to examine that question and takes Peter through the history of the premiership to explain it's evolution and why we are now in a point in history where those filling the role don't have the necessary experience to maximise the importance of the position.
