I’ve covered the first eight Great Offices of State lectures here, now with a link for international viewers – but the last three have happened. I’ll link them here and give them a brief summary.
George Osborne, current Chancellor of the Exchequer, discusses the history and modern incarnation of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Alan Johnson, former Home Secretary, discusses Civil Service reform and defends the traditional impartial Civil Service over a partisanly appointed US-style Civil Service while supporting Special Advisers.
William Hague, current Foreign Secretary, talks about the occupants, history and future of the Foreign Office.
