Martin Walker - Danube Dialogues by Danube Institute

In this episode of the Danube Dialogues, John O’Sullivan, President of the Danube Institute in Budapest interviews Martin Walker, British journalist and thriller writer about his experiences as a foreign correspondent in many different parts of the world and his views on history, leaders and the nature of the ever-changing politics. Conservatism was always centered around extremely charismatic leaders, of which we are in short supply these days, as the magnitude of Thatcher could not be compared to the controversiality of Trump. On the left, however, leaders don’t matter as much as policies, and Walker thinks social democracy needs lead the green revolution if it wants to hold its platform in the future.
