At the age of 10 Skinner won a scholarship to the local grammar school. Although he did well and could easily have gone on to university Skinner, to the dismay of his parents, opted to leave school and join his mates down the pit.
In due course he was elected to the local council and, in 1970, to parliament. Known for his acerbic wit, we’ll hear an account of Skinner’s 40 and more years fighting the class war in parliament. He’ll also be signing copies of his new book – ‘Sailing Close to the Wind.’
