Ep 20 - Master interview: Lord Arbuthnot

Episode 20,  Nov 08, 2022, 05:52 PM

Lord (James) Arbuthnot speaks to Rebecca and Nick. An hour wasn't quite long enough, but the good Lord did reveal some intriguing details we haven't heard before including the revelation he applied to the government to succeed Tim Parker as Chairman of the Post Office, and didn't even get an interview!

Before the summer Lord (James) Arbuthnot (or Baron Arbuthnot of Edrom to give him his full title) very kindly agreed to give up some time to talk to Rebecca and Nick about his involvement in the Post Office Horizon scandal. We finally caught up in October and have only just got round to publishing the final podcast. An hour wasn't quite long enough, but the good Lord did reveal some intriguing details we haven't heard before including the revelation he applied to the government to succeed Tim Parker as Chairman of the Post Office, and didn't even get an interview!
