As former Prime Minister and our longest-serving Chancellor, Gordon Brown has been a guiding force for Britain and the world over 40 years. His memoir, My Life, Our Times, reflects candidly on an extraordinary career from New Labour’s 1997 landslide electoral victory, to the 2008 global financial crisis and the historic 2014 Scottish and 2016 European referendums. He talks about this and more – the coalition negotiations of 2010, Britain and Europe – as well as his many years at the Treasury where he equipped Britain for a globalised economy, introduced the minimum wage, gave independence to the Bank of England and refinanced the NHS.
