"No doubt about it. She's been spamming Gastric and chas that boost tourism. That boris johnson. Also has. she's obviously going to be globe-trotting more. So than dominic variables being able to use the clone of virus pandemic. I think question about how much time she can. Devote the qualities. Brief is a very interesting one. Because prime ministers often appoint people to the foreign office they want to get out of the country and not be too much doing too much leadership plotting. But i think she has a particular view on qualities and she started off life as a liberal democrat as you mentioned campaigning. Greenham common but now she's libertarian. Conservative very different to say the dean who owns a social conservative list intensely relaxed on social issues. How people want to live their lives. Imagine that as she described an interview she has a very particular view of equality and how to achieve that she sees about empowering individuals not using the state to address some of the long stunning inequality. So i think she's a much more prominent role. Now it's going to be interesting to see how that pans out over the next couple of years. What may will issues about women in parliament women. In politics women in senior rose will become more prominent and how she tackles the campaign for the state to do more effectively. The country's chief chief feminists chief women's equality fights. Is that a all. You see list trust that she will focus on despite your concerns about where she'll be in the world i think certainly the thing about his trust to be fair to her is that she knows what she berries and she isn't afraid to express the video. I think you ms slightly sort of wishy washy era where hebrew brunson whether they prime minister is libertarian. Or north in indeed is a conservative or not when it comes to salvage fiscal policies of late bengal mistrust. Like does it says.

"That was ottesen goals. Where the lord ran on which say has always strongly denied allegations of sexual harassment and allison goals. Where the book is called poles apart. Well the newspapers according it ruthless. A call a day of unexpected political brutality. But yesterday's cabinet reshuffle has worked pretty well for women in the conservative party. Pretty patel the home secretary stays in post. Liz trust has been promoted to foreign secretary while retaining her women inequalities brief and ninety dollars has been promoted to culture secretary. I'm marie trevelyan. Who was on yesterday. Move from energy minister secretary of state for international trade.

Pain author of the new book broken heartlands a journey through labor's lost england and white will of the financial times and camilla tommy associate editor at the telegraph. Camilla sebastian welcomed. Let me start with you camilla. What's your take in terms of the women. Being put into these pole positions is it is something to do with the conservative base. Or is it just something. We shouldn't really make note of the retention of critique silence claim second free promotion of mistrust as foreign secretary does play to call them because they're both considered very much stories and it comes at a time when worship criticized for being unconservative because of his health and social candy that many tax rise in that whole wrong more labor lights than play the toy showers. So that's significant. You could argue from female perspective however that you know if women inequalities assumption for issue to the prime minister he should give that ministry to completely set repositories rather than kind of rubbing it in with mistrust lot when presumably in after having spent the pandemic sunny post brexit trade deals. She's going to be on this massive global charm offensive out the country for many months a year and that will perhaps not able to concentrate particularly hard on the hostages. That we've yes. There's always been that concern. It's been a secondary position as well regardless of sort of who else is in doing what i know. That theresa may had it when she was coming through. And so did amber rod. She had it at the same time believers as home secretary. A in terms of sebastian. To bring you into this. What do these women's speak to a. What do they say to those those so-called red wool voters. I know you've been looking at. The appointment of knitting doors is particularly interesting on that question of because the dean always was surprise. Appointment you know. She was sixty four.

"Programs b minus. What was schooled. State registered. Nurse qualification at that point. Three year program at paddington general hospital. In west london in the late sixties sickle cell was around them. But we weren't taught about it. I don't remember coming across the patient with the condition. But i didn't do much children's nursing have to be honest at point then. I did my health visitor training in london. In nineteen seventy seventy one no information about sickle cell nimia. Yet we did get information about inherited illnesses long-term conditions. So why are we not learning about these on. This isn't this was a period. now i come back from. France worked in front for nine months she. I was teaching english to some doctors. Children's really cushy job loved it but it was there. I met a french benin midwife and i told the story about washing my face ten times on she sits me. Had i read fronts. Black skin white masks are never even heard of fronts. And in fact she picked up for all the reading that i did it quickly elicited that i didn't know any writers of color. So you read this book i read did difficult start with quite theoretical but then it really clarified. Because he was a psychiatrist on from the french caribbean martini working in algiers and a huge psychiatric hospital before algeria got its independence from france and he really had observed the many brands can black skinned individuals were stigmatized by their skin color. They're brown black skin color and he argued the district youtube if mexico and therefore you know it wasn't surprising that people who were not white who were brown skinned lows that their identity and the impact. This could have on the mental health. Honestly this book was out for me because it just made me understand why. I felt uncomfortable in my own skin. It made me realize well why you don't need to be. It's not your fault it's other people's perception of you and started reading around a lot more a lot more blockbuster start..

Because i was off cast now i never as a child realize the irony of that wasn't until many many years later is not telling somebody that stored elizabeth humpty dumpty is an egg at as.

I would have been visited humpty dumpty. i'd been a why egg but of course this brand eggs there's bound eggs never never thought of that also mean really stupid but i mean how cruel to use your power to withhold. This understood stood our ground. And i i did play humpty dumpty in all. I was very happy. It wasn't until i went to live with my mother and stepfather. That race did rear. Its head end sense that my stepfather was being teased by his friends down at the pablo. What's he doing with a half class child in an how this is now. We're talking in nineteen forty seven. So we're talking about nineteen fifty six fifty seven just to put it in context and this is wolverhampton which wasn't as diverse as obviously now and He physically abused me. My mother wasn't aware until really serious. Beating gave me. I am not because i never told my mother he he would always hit me when my mom wasn't around so he was quite catholic in the way he did it. It does break my heart to hear this. it really does elizabeth and i to new. I think what was quite poignant that will do role very important parts that you have been very honest about so. Thank you for being very honest about that. It's always very hard. I think to say that. But you i think was what was really hard was when you said that you had to wash your face so many times speak. I'm white. i find that. Really really heartbreaking as well as everything else that you've been through please. I'm not demanding anything but i find that bit very hard. You know you are a person.

"As the amount of sport the i done had been getting less and less and i you know i was doing quite a back democ. What but. I kind of been deciding that sports isn't for me i'm not sporty. That's that's not what i do. I do the academic side or do the creative side of things and actually it was only. After i picked up running again and realized that i could be a scholar. Athletes and excel in my studies at cambridge and usa excel in sports. That i realized i was really pigeonholing myself when i was younger and yeah i think a lot of goes go through three bit in secondary school especially moving away from doing the sports that they might love and i think that's really sad because sport is just the most amazing connector and the most amazing way to learn how to work as team how to understand what you want to go off to your goals how to understand your body understand how to feed your body effectively and take care of your body effectively in. There's just so many amazing things that you can learn from sport. The i think you lose if you give up a young age and that's something that can happen. Quite lots of young girls absolutely right often encouraged to give up things as well parents or whoever might think getting in the way of the studies. So your family. I'm assuming are firstly quite relieved. You don't have to drive you to japan seeming that there maybe attending with you or at least they must be thrilled to bits about leila because no one was about to happen..

"To the plastic podcasts. Tales of the irish diaspora find and subscribe to us at. Www dot plastic podcasts dot com and the last section of my interview dame elizabeth anne on woo. We talk about a nigerian and irish heritage is not being a member of the diaspora means to her. Think is the difference between the experiences of the desperate in the nigerian diaspora nigerians I've never felt enslaved. That they've had colonization when you look at the horrific history in ireland and britain. Come in a. I think that the trauma there. A storage Whatever from wave on wave upon i. sometimes. I think surprised the irish even talk to the british. I you know obviously things an obscene osam initial interest in history. So they're all. There are similarities in terms of types of relationships. They've had with britain. Because of course as you said quite rightly although i'm of nine nigerian irish heritage. I'm not i've never. I was never bought up at nyland. I didn't grow up. I mean a hideout specs of irish cultural heritage from the diaspora. But i wasn't born and brought up in highland I thought and the same for nigeria. I wasn't born and brought up in nigeria. I don't speak ibo few words. Nothing so even though. I'm very conscious and proud of the heritage. I also realize i would be called. What is it plastic paddy. That's you know. I thought that would also nigeria. I naught not nigerian. I know. I've got nigerian hardships. But you seldom saying. I didn't grow up and i don't speak them under justices A i understand that on gradually. I've got very confident and proud of who. I am on the block with sheesh. Woman of irish nigerian heritage. Thank you very much. I'm very comfortable with that describing myself in terms and not being embarrassed that don't speak this language or don't speak that language not being embarrassed. I don't understand certain aspects of the culture because i haven't grown up in a walk This is my heritage. I i have been pulled up occasional asides years ago. You know you did it to us. So that's my fault was born in this country us is. This is my heritage a heritage. But it's my experience so the example don't speak hebrew wonderful sometimes Leabeau's have compete very in your face. That was phone. i can help it. I didn't know my father and shuts can tell you and then we get back to being pleasant. But i will. I will stand up an unsorted. Explain because i thought about these things so march you have to win. You have mixed heritage you if you haven't grown up t plea S- const in those coaches in. Why did i haven't really some aspects of it but you know we have to. If you're not proud of you ended up being you are. That's when the negative self doubts. And i think come into play when we look at that. The wheels also also being aware of the the rise in invisibility of mixed race irish. Yes and things like that and it it one. i wonder if that's that's the same with with mixed-race diaspora of of all kinds of different heritages. If there's if if there is a some great confidence in talking about a mixed heritage rather than being one thing or another and if so do you think it's down to anything in particular all over the the the way the history. Well i would have thought that for example Members of mixed irish. That i know who born in island brown skinned irish-accented ir son and many of them For them. i don't know i've listened to for them to have been seen as other is particularly vicious. I think they they are really being slapped in the face again. Can you can have as much irish tradition ours. Kosher they are. They are irish for the big o brown skins. So it's it's it's a sad aspect of some aspect of irish politics that there are those that. Think if you're irish a white skin and that is there still. We know that and that is the heritage of racism on. It's ironic and i've i've read some of the literature on this. It's it's it's more than ironic. It's it's desperately sad but you know how sometimes we what we all can look down on others to have irish people who've come through all the trials that they have experienced down this think hold on step back a little bit. Think about your own problems. You've had with other groups in this world. Why are you suddenly now looking down your nose at irish people out and have a brown skin. You need to take a look at yourself. You need to know your history better on any to practice without faith or whatever belief you have in how you relate to fellow irish people. Because i've seen well. I follow a lot of the Through expressed irish. I mean it's it's critically important organization for me. It's a channel through which do read about the debates that are going on an island for example you know the experiences some people. It's not all negative. Don't get me wrong but you know the the there are these one final question. Which is the question. I ask all of the interviewees which is what does being a member of the diaspora. What is it meant to you. It's a source of pride to me to be part of the irish diaspora. Because i've had the privilege of growing up and having a rich culture embedded in me from childhood off. I look back and it's not as though with my nigerian heritage. I came to that as an adult. And i'm very pleased. I did not. I i It's brought me a lot of value enjoyment and interest. But there's no doubt about it. I used to be a health visit to solve asleep. Studied the issues about child psychology. There's no doubt about it that whatever impacts on you as a child.

"Sickle cell. We know that when you compare it to an equally serious condition so you know. I don't believe in hierarchy keb illness. Cystic fibrosis which is a very serious. Genetic condition affecting the lungs in the banquets and all sorts to dominantly affects the white northern european communities it does too much lesser extent effect. Black minority But to reveal much lesser extent. So you see what condition my cystic fibrosis. Which as of statism warrants count support for the families. It's actually fewer cases of cystic fibrosis sickle cell disease. But if you look at the allocation of resources it's it's it's it's the reverse. What is the big difference. One affects many want many blockages. That's to me. The other areas that are very similar. The inheritance partners the same with both set very serious conditions both can cause death on both requests screening programs. You know the so in terms of conditions the very very similar but who they affect is different and all of that. Historically you can map out the inequalities even even though sister progresses could do much more support. They still have more support than conditioned lexical sauces. And as i said on. I'm very careful not to pit one condition against another. But when we're talking about health inequalities useful to have some examples not just spouting so you mentioned being outside and a surface level local sweet. It's like a pot nigerian Pot irish and also in british communities inciteful one way or the other. You're going to appear as an outside. It's one of those three sections exactly and yet he will dame elizabeth any mood. Do you ever saw. I'm not get here. of course i do. I mean come on. Put your sense of humor. I've it's not that.

So i'm i'm very grateful for the owners but i'm actually more grateful. Daughter granddaughter. two flats of friendship. French ships put music and thorough. She thinks much more important. I have turned down another award by the way i did. I did a did write about it. In my memoir. I didn't. i didn't talk about it when it happened. Because i felt That thing so it's it's a obviously. I've accepted would subsequently but i turned down was lambie e in the eighties and it was for sickle subs-. I was honored. But i wasn't happy about the fact that the national health service on the department of health when not doing enough for the families affected by these conditions in so i politely wrote confidential as a wants to make it public. Thank you very much. I'm on the draw. The i can see institutions providing more support to families. Pay much sitting on adult. I don't lie empire by the way either which a lot of us don't like about the votes. And i respect those people who turned down on the simply because of the empire You know But i got talked into accepting a cb which was the next dollars giving two thousand one substance to nursing on. A few friends sent me down. Because i needed to work. I didn't really want to accept it because but they said look it is a.

"What i learned a when. I was admitted in circumstances and yeah it was six months of age. I started in the for the hudson's hung's which was for the younger children. And then i moved on three and a half a pint State that until i was when i went to stay with my mother and stepfather. I'm going to talk about that in a second if i may. But first of all let's rewind slightly until your to your mother and father meeting. I mean you've talked about in in your book but They met at cambridge didn't they. That's fine my mother was in her. Another was studying classics. She went in one thousand nine hundred five so the last year of the second world war. She got scholarship. And your mother's irish. Yes heritage in the sense that it was her. Great grandparents was the generation that were born talking armand. My grandparents were born in liverpool in eighteen. Ninety six and my mother was born in liverpool in nineteen twenty six. I actually commissioned genealogists from dublin to look into irish richard side fascinating because there wasn't much records except my great aunt. Cade had written a letter to mind cousin setting out. Quantum bits of family history on the genealogy said that that was upset. Fantastic those with the If the clues that he needed to explore much much much more deeply into our irish have and he was able to go back to the eighteen forties. Maywood as good work actually. That's very good work with the lack of where you know. Show the record. Dot billion for various reasons terms of the one of the key sentences eighteen something other eight was fire in dublin. Destroyed destroyed lots of of the of the records but it was the church records coast where everybody registered at birth and death in the church in omlund thought in this country is wrong dot spin a huge source of information for many people looking for their family history so your mother is of our heritage in studying classics at cambridge at cambridge. And my father was nigerian and he hadn't been awarded a scholarship to study law in again in cambridge. And we're talking about the second period of the second world war. My father came over in nineteen forty two in the middle of the second world war. I thought was interesting. He started his studies. I think trinity hole on my mother. I was nineteen forty-five at newnham college to study classics. I don't. I've never found out how they met or anything like that would have be nice but by the time i was really curious about the the both deceased any us. Anybody so your your your mother your mother your father and you follow the metro mother. And you -able nine months and nineteen forty seven and my mother wasn't married and catholic. The whole irish catholic heritage can imagine so you can just unimaginable. The shock was for my mother when she was pregnant. And i've only caught is quite good that i had this. I have the oral history from my aunts. My mother's youngest sister unfairly very close to him and my mother wouldn't didn't tell parents she was pregnant. It was my grandmother. The realized situation when she was finishing signed address for my skirt was during the fitting tight. Measure around my mom's waste when she six months pregnant of my grandmother quickly. What the situation was to horror. Everybody's ora my grandfather was a stalwart of the catholic church was friends with the local parish priest and he went straight the parish priest to seek advice and they and also. My mother was a bright student at cambridge university. You know it was a bit of status going on there and a desire to enable another to complete studies which she didn't in the end but not due to lack of support. I mean i think some of retaliation that my mother to drop out in spite of oil oil the connections and support that she got between the church and my family on university university Knew that she was pregnant. They told that she talked to nervous. Breakdown Bring a billeting enough Island at an for me. When i came across these papers i was fascinated because i was bought up very much in a strict catholic environment in a company. Come on and on my contact with the catholic church lasted until i was sixteen. When i left my gren-grenada grandma mother's house and you know you're taught never to lie and bitter and sort of see all these papers. The collusion going on between the church and the university said university to so the lies that were being told and think well. That's interesting so you can lie in certain circumstances but not in others but there was a multi support from my mother had to sign. Yes so at three months old you will take it into the Into the care of the church. Six six months was taken into the father. Hudson's homes which were in birmingham. And i stayed the Until i was five. I think and then i moved to the not with house convent. The children's side again in birmingham and my memories of nostrils I don't remember. I vaguely have a memory of being on the verandas as a toddler so that would have been the father hudson sons. But it's it's not with house children's home that i remember that i started describing intensify memoirs. Blow your resort overall..

"We don't see ourselves as part of the establishment. In fact the closest we come is calling ourselves we when all this is is one man in a room with a microphone. An arts council grant all that changes today. However as we play host to dame elizabeth anyanwu one of the bbc's list of one hundred most influential women in the world. In twenty twenty awarded the damehood for her work on sickle cell and fallacy mia. She was born in birmingham to a nigerian father and an irish mother. A dual heritage. That is the subject of her book. Mixed blessings from a cambridge union raised in a convent. She was inspired to become a nurse at the tender age of four for all the plaudits and awards. Perhaps what makes dame elizabeth even more of a pillar of the establishment is the fact that earlier this year. She was a castaway on desert island discs. It's been quite the life so far and so naturally we start by talking about. I experienced my first death that eighteen very naive shelter. Kid i mean you know. I had a very sheltered Experience to be thrust on award and just told by third year student nurse going. Help this The i jin knows we're in sankoh to lay out a body. I mean come on you know no no no sort of preparation you just get on with it. And it was emotionally quite. Can you ever that sort of thing. Can you prepare for that sort of thing. I think you can actually prepare students at least shine with students. A more experienced person sharing with new students their their feelings and experiences stay carried out laying out to a that individual and does so in that. You're not surprised at the reaction that you care because if you're not prepared for the reaction it go away feeling really guilty sometimes I mean described in my memoirs. The friend Say team haven't been told to prepare this decision. Gentlemen four The motoring and he was he was huge. And it is optimum was huge because of the nature of the illness that he had died from. Collective fluid is optimum. Nobody prepared us for that. We've just gone gone to if somebody sign. Look just be aware that when you go in the because when we will into the wasn't even a cubicle Cutting off area of the ward always saw was a sheet over this body in the sheet going like that literally and then obtuse. What would moses face and we both looked at each other and we were both short I had to get from one side of the bed. And my frank gore. On the other side we had to wash this gentleman's forte which which which required turning him over uh so that we could While she's bad. Now that i think we want the students that should have been sentenced. Should've sent taller bicker students into on because it was it was really. It was actually quite scary task us so when i pushed the gentleman over towards Friends so that nobody had prepared us for the expulsion of air. That can happen with a dead person. Now come on. So what did we hear as well. We just hysterical and hysterical laughter on the ward system. Curtis because we're quite near office and the she she slightly with the curtains back. Push them close them quickly after stunned that just that made it even worse. Of course though tears. Coming down our This awful. She was fantastic. Dogs she was. I mean that's what teachers should be like. She shop with us in the sense of color. Gentlemen come into my office. Fortunately didn't have to walk very far when she shut the door but before she showed doshi called another nurse and she whispered something to Don't go on their shopping. What she does not to do was to go and get some sympathy and imagine 'cause she realized the shock we win and the fear that we were in. because we we've been discovered not she crying. We were petrified Look stop okay. You don't need to call you know in any trouble and then started to explore interests. look She was crossed with the third year students. Who should have been with us is. We shouldn't have been left alone so it was the first experience in this. And she does the thirtieth students to organize getting another student to help. An unbeknown to the boards Just got to first year students and told them to get on with them. So you know there's also things going on and in the end you know she sought with us not with us and that she called the thirty student in who gave her taking awfully. It was wiling at one point unless she stopped us. All come on servicemen and we had this team biscuits with what was interesting. She talked about death and dying she. She turned into sorta tutorial. I've always remembered that in terms of the vote that we will not in teaching junior. Stop jimmy people fascinating work. It switched from where it was like. We were going to be punished and fearful to very nice detoro. Thank you very much. Is it what you is what you didn't visage when you're reading from your the the biography on you're under website here at the age of four urine spots yes dark.

I grew up in the age of nine and i'd had very bad expert and the way she distracted me from pain while she was taking the dressing off you know are never forget.
