The Blind Side Podcast Episode 31, Lord David Blunkett, UK former Home Secretary

Determined to make his country a better place, David Blunkett became a local politician at the age of just 22, the youngest city councillor at the time. He ultimately became Council leader.
Elected as a Labour member of Parliament in 1987, he served in Tony Blair’s cabinet in a number of capacities, including the senior position of Home Secretary, becoming the first blind person to be a part of the UK Cabinet.
He was, at one point, considered a potential Prime Minister.
Now Lord Blunkett, he joins Jonathan Mosen, a political junky who has followed his career closely, to talk about life in the bear pit of politics when you’re blind.
