Political Editor, The Sunday Times
A front-row seat at the battle for Brexit, two decades in national newspaper journalism, whether Theresa May can cling on… and could Corbyn actually win?
Tim Shipman is Political Editor of the Sunday Times. A national newspaper journalist for nearly twenty years, he was previously the Deputy Political Editor of the Daily Mail, and Washington Correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph. In this in-depth interview, he shares his front-row seat at the ongoing battle for Brexit and the recent bungled general election, with daily life dealing with all the major players – both on and off the record; observes that during the days of Blair and Brown people at least knew what the rules of the game were, and nowadays no one does; reveals what it was like to work for the likes of Paul Dacre and Richard Desmond; discusses how social media has irrevocably altered not only how politics is done, but how its covered too; and stares into his crystal ball to answer the biggest questions of the moment – how long can Theresa May stay as Prime Minister, and could Corbyn actually win?
