Peter Watt

Former General Secretary, Labour Party

The NSPCC’s campaigning role in the Jimmy Savile scandal

11th December 2014

As General Secretary at the Labour Party, Peter Watt oversaw the party’s transition from Tony Blair to Gordon Brown. Resigning at the height of the Donorgate affair in 2007, he published his no-holds-barred memoir and exposé ‘Inside Out’ soon after, which cast an unforgiving light on Brown’s leadership style and caused a media furore. Now Director of Child Protection at the NSPCC, Peter explains how he ‘managed’ the press at the top of the Labour Party and talks about the NSPCC’s campaigning role in the Jimmy Savile scandal.
