Broadcast round-up: clients in action
Yesterday evening over 150 people gathered at the Royal Over-Seas League in St James’s for the launch of Sir Anthony Seldon’s May at 10. Guest of Honour Suzanne Heywood spoke movingly about her late husband Jeremy, Lord Heywood of Whitehall, former Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service, to whom the book is dedicated.
Other guests included former Brexit Secretary David Davis MP, Chairman of the 1922 Committee Sir Graham Brady MP, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service Sir Mark Sedwill, former Chief Negotiator for Exiting the EU Olly Robbins, former Joint Downing Street Chief of Staff Fiona Hill, former Deputy Downing Street Chief of Staff Kate Fall, Sky News presenter Adam Boulton, Sunday Times Political Editor Tim Shipman and English Cricket Board selector Ed Smith.
The launch party follows the high-profile serialisation of May at 10 in The Times which has featured in the news agenda for several days, with the book being described as ‘extraordinary’ and ‘brutal’ in its assessment of Theresa May.
