Labour’s Tom Watson on political conspiracies, weight loss and living with ADHD – POLITICO

Co-host Ailbhe Rea sits down with the charismatic former deputy leader of the Labor Party, Tom Watson, to discuss his political life and beyond.

Watson remembers his pivotal role in the Blair/Brown battles of the 2000s, and the tussle with Rupert Murdoch that thrust him into the limelight — and hunted down by private detectives — in the 2010s. He talks about his rocky years as Jeremy Corbyn’s deputy, his life beyond politics as chairman of UK Music – he spent the weekend at the Glastonbury Festival – and the dramatic change in lifestyle that saw him lose eight stone in weight.
