The Rt Hon Sir Nicholas Soames



Sir Nicholas Soames MP gave the China Exchange a lively and thought provoking 60 minutes. He covered peace in Europe; the needs of a modern military including the role of the forces and its importance in diplomacy; his views on the US election; security in Russia, the Ukraine and the Baltic States; what it was like to grow up as Churchill’s grandson; Syria; homelessness in London; fairness in society; leadership in the NHS; patents, innovation and the Chinese approach to economic development.


Sir Nicholas Soames quote: We have lost all sense of proportion for the world in which we live. I think the world has emerged from the 20th century in pretty good shape… You wouldn't really believe from our public discourse today that human beings are getting much healthier, they're happier, they're richer, they're better off.
