John Miller considers 20th-century political insiders and outsiders through the eyes of today's historians on radio.

Mosley was authoritarian but I don't think he was intrinsically more authoritarian than many other political leaders. I wouldn't have thought he was more authoritarian than Margaret Thatcher who was perfectly able to stay within a conventional political system. (Robert Skidelsky)

If Dalton had been Foreign Secretary a lot of things would have been different, I think, after 1945. It's an interesting example of the way in which a very momentary decision of an almost casual kind can change the way in which a nation's development or indeed international developments can continue for a subsequent period of years. (Ben Pimlott)
