Host: Lennox Love Book Festival
Location: Festival Marquee, Lennoxlove House, Haddington, EH41 4NZ
Speaker: Ray Perman & Alistair Darling
Ray Perman and Alistair Darling will discuss HUBRIS: How HBOS Wrecked the Best Bank in Britain. Ray’s new book (with a foreword by Alistair) is the story of a stunning fall from grace. In 1995 the Bank of Scotland celebrated 300 years as Britain’s oldest commercial bank. Less than 15 years later it was bust. A former Financial Times journalist, Ray has traced this spectacular fall and, as Chancellor, Alistair was directly involved in the dramatic events of 2008 when the world’s economy tottered. In his Back from the Brink of 2011, Alistair has recorded this remarkable period in history whose effects will endure for generations.More Information
