Event Details

Sir Malcolm Thornton's lecture is entitled "Re-connecting with People"150

“Whatever elected politicians – and other public office holders – may think, a huge gap has grown between them and the public they are there to serve. Over 50 years in public life have convinced me that this disconnect cannot, must not, be allowed to continue and that there are ways to address it.”

 SIR MALCOLM THORNTON FRSA

Sir Malcolm started his career as a River Mersey Pilot, combining this with a 14 year period in local government, before entering Parliament in 1979 where he served for 18 years. He was Chairman of the House of Commons Select Committee for Education from 1988-97. He was made an Honorary Doctor of Education at De Montfort University in October 1994.

In a voluntary capacity, Sir Malcolm was Chairman of Wednesbury Education Action Zone (1999-2004), Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Mersey Mission to Seafarers (2003-2010) and Chairman of Governors of a very large primary school from 1974-2011). He was a Board member of Liverpool John Moores University from 2001-2013 and was Pro Chancellor and Chairman of the Board from 2007-2013. He was made an Ambassador Fellow of the University in July 2013. He is a former Honorary Colonel of 156(NW) Transport Regiment RLC(V).

 Sir Malcolm was knighted in HM. The Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 1992.
