Feel Britannia: Geoff Hoon
SERIES: We ask artist former Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon "What makes you feel emotional about Britain?"
In anticipation of May 7, we asked our favourite figures in the arts to tell us what makes Britain feel like home.
Geoff Hoon, former Defence Secretary:
"It is the sight of the massed ranks of the Household Cavalry at the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, with the British Summer sun reflecting fiercely off their highly polished breastplates."
Geoff Hoon served as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ashfield from 1992 to 2010. He is a former Defence Secretary, Transport Secretary, Leader of the House of Commons and Government Chief Whip.
