In this episode of The Reset, Former Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Co-chair at British-Turkish Forum Rt Hon Jack Straw talks to Pelin Akın Özalp, about discovering his interest in politics that lead him to pursue a decorated career spanning over thirty years. From Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War to the brief history of Turkey-EU relations, Straw and Özalp discuss the decisions that significantly affected personal and political realms.
The feelings that the reset would evoke in my life are the ones where you really like to go back to something where you’d made a mistake or made a wrong decision, taking the wrong path but, you’d like to avoid that path and go down a different path— the truth is you can’t do that. So, you have to deal with life as it is.
