In episode five of Conversations on Character's second series, the Jubilee Centre welcomes the Rt. Hon Lord David Blunkett of Brightside and Hillsborough the former UK Home Secretary (2001 - 2004) and Secretary of State for both the Department's of Work and Pensions (2005) and Education (1997 - 2001).
Still one of the UK most prominent parliamentarians, now a Life Peer in the House of Lords, Lord Blunkett is President of the Association for Citizenship Teaching, a Patron of National Citizens Service (NCS), and a member of the APPG for Political Literacy among many other civic roles. With host Dr. Tom Harrison, he discusses his time in politics over the last four decades, the meaning of character in public life, his reflections on how to inspire young people into social action and who for him best personifies the virtue of courage.
