Duration: 30 minutes

HARDtalk speaks to Andrea Leadsom, named by one of Britain's foremost political magazines, the Spectator, as their 'newcomer of the year'. She's a backbench Conservative MP, whom they described as a 'potent mix of authority, restlessness and fearlessness'. She's certainly been causing trouble for the Prime Minister: voting against him on Europe and drawing up a plan on how he should repatriate powers from Europe. But she's also made a name for herself challenging the way London's banks have been working. As a former banker, how does she think they should clean up their act?
