Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to Conservative MP for Hitchin and Harpenden Bim Afolami. 22/04/2020
Bim is Conservative MP for Hitchin and Harpenden since 2017. Before he became an MP he worked as a corporate lawyer in the city.
In this episode Bim speaks about what he means by one nation conservatism, his Nigerian heritage giving him a sense of the importance of politics, and his sacred value of equality of opportunity.
Over the coming weeks we will be releasing short extra episodes in response to the strange times we are living through. Former guests will be returning to reflect on how they are processing this season, if this crisis has crystallised or even changed what they hold sacred, and what it might tell us about our collective sacred values.
We would love to hear your responses to these same questions. You can send us your thoughts in a voice note to 07778160052 or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep your responses to under a minute and a half if you can.
