Description

Sarah Southern had her political awakening very early: at three she was dressing up as Maggie! She worked at the heart of the political machine and her story of elections, campaigning, Prime Ministers and polling days will have you gripped. In a time of political turmoil, she's questioning her political identity and wondering: who does she vote for now?

Insightful, funny and informative. Sarah gives an honest and entertaining overview of her time in the Tory machine and beyond. I highly recommend you catch the show. An excellent kick start to a day at the fringe.
