James Johnsen took eighteen Church House clients to hear a talk from Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller LG, former Director-General of MI5
Lady Manningham-Buller was delivering the Royal Humane Society’s inaugural Birdwood Lecture, which Church House sponsors and the event was held at the Royal Geographical Society.
Speaking to a packed auditorium of nearly 700, it was reassuring to learn that our security service is in the hands of such doughty defendants as Lady M-B who now, among other distinguished roles, also chairs the Wellcome Foundation. “Unlike some, we in Britain never resorted to torture to extract vital information. To do this would be to undermine the rule of law and the very values we were seeking to protect and uphold” she explained.
The Royal Humane Society is a charity that grants awards for acts of bravery in the saving of human life and also for the restoration of life by resuscitation. There are many ways in which you can donate plus they also accept nominations for awards.
