Christopher Hope

Chief Political Correspondent, The Daily Telegraph

The inside take on Brexit – and the challenge of reporting on a former colleague… who became prime minister

29th August 2019

Christopher Hope is chief political correspondent and assistant editor at the Telegraph. He is chairman of the Parliamentary Lobby, and presenter of the ‘Chopper’s Brexit Podcast’ which features interviews with senior politicians and analysis from the Telegraph’s Westminster team. In this in-depth interview, he discusses the somewhat unusual situation of having his former colleague Boris Johnson become prime minister, and his appeal as the “Heineken” politician; tackles critics of the ‘Lobby’ and the alleged “cosy” relationship between reporters and MPs, and reveals how a family tragedy inspired him to found ‘Legacy of Hope’ – a charity helping child amputees in the developing world.
