Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.
In his youth, he commanded a motor torpedo boat called HMS Gay Charger, and in later life became a Mousquetaire d’Armagnac. In between, Nigel Lawson was Neil’s second favourite Chancellor of the Exchequer since the Second World War. We discuss the life and achievements of Margaret Thatcher’s most intellectually confident Number 11 neighbour, their turbulent relationship, and the decisions that still mark the way we live now.
