Events in London - Wednesday 13th November

Need some inspiration for 13th November? Geoffrey Howe delivered his devastating resignation speech on this day on 1990, which ultimately led to the ousting of Margaret Thatcher. If you visit the House of Parliament yourself then you probably won’t see anything as important as that, but you can still watch a debate inside the House of Commons.
