Paddy Ashdown joins Soho Voices
We now represent one of the country’s best known and most respected political figures Paddy Ashdown.
Paddy entered the House of Commons in 1983 and became the first leader of the Liberal and Social Democratic Party in 1988, a post he held for 11 years.
He was knighted in 2000, entered the House of Lords a year later and was a leading advocate for decisive international action in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He is now President of UNICEF UK.
A seasoned television and radio presenter, in 2012 Paddy presented the BBC documentary The Cockleshell Heroes based on his book A Brilliant Little Operation. His latest book, The Cruel Victory, marking the 70th anniversary of Vercors in 1944 was published in June 2014.
Paddy is a genuine voice of reason in the modern age and his calm distinctive tones bring real gravitas to any conversation.
