S2, E3: Henry McDonald Podcast About The Houses Of Parliament UK

Henry McDonald talks to two top authorities about the precarious state of the British Houses of Parliament: Ian Paisley Jnr. and the Observer Architecture Critic, Rowan Moore.

This podcast episode is one of many examples of Henry’s superb broadcasting work.  These excellent interviews were recorded in 2022 before Henry became ill.



The team here at Constructive Voices have been deeply saddened by the news that our colleague and friend, Henry MacDonald passed away aged just 57. We offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

Those who have been listening to this podcast since we started, will recognize that Henry was one of the most important voices on the programme.

His interviews never failed to be engaging, interesting, thought provoking, and on topics that make a real difference to the construction industry and wider society.

Henry’s long career in journalism included 23 years as the Ireland correspondent for The Guardian and observer. He also wrote landmark books on the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and was renowned for his insights into paramilitaries, the security services and politics.

Next week, in Season 2, Episode 4, the Constructive Voices team will pay tribute to Henry by remembering some of the great interviews that he did on this podcast.

But for now, we’re remembering again one of Henry’s most incredible interviews, discovering the fragile state of Britain’s Houses of Parliament, the Palace of Westminster.
