How do you deal with public disgrace? | Jonathan Aitken and Conrad Black

PUBLISHED October 26, 2012

Former Conservative cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken was convicted in 1999 of perjury and perverting the course of justice and served seven months in jail. Conrad Black, who once owned the Telegraph and has a seat in the House of Lords, was released from a US prison this year after serving time for fraud and obstruction of justice. This week they met to compare experiences. Susanna Rustin listened in.
