Alan Johnson is a former MP and now an award-winning author and broadcaster. Alan’s work in government includes positions as Home Secretary, Education Secretary and Health Secretary, and as MP for Kingston-upon-Hull West and Hessle he happily tackled matters of electoral reform, trade unionists and fairness at work.
About Alan Johnson
Alan was a regular on the popular This Week (BBC1) while showing a more humorous side with guest presenter stints on Have I Got News For You (BBC1) and, surprisingly, The Masked Singer (ITV1), alongside documentaries like Alan Johnson: The Post Office and Me (BBC4) and indulging his passion in The Nation’s Favourite Beatles Number 1 (ITV1).
Alan says his greatest achievement is the successful campaign for the British Fishermen’s Association which helped secure their claim for compensation, 25 years after distant water trawlermen had their industry destroyed by the agreement that the government reached with Iceland to end the so-called Cod Wars.
Alan became the youngest General Secretary in the history of the Union of Communication Workers when he was elected to the post in January 1992 and went on to be elected as a Labour MP in 1997. His journey from growing up in a condemned slum in North Kensington, orphaned age 12 to the corridors of power (via an attempted pop career) was memorably detailed in his award-winning trilogy of memoirs This Boy, Please Mr Postman and The Long and Winding Road. Did we mention he’s a Beatles fan…?
