Biography: Tim Hames

Tim Hames is an amusing and accomplished after dinner speaker and awards host with a deep reservoir of little-known but true revelations about the realms of media and politics. He is also a periodic broadcaster for Radio 4; a columnist in The Tablet, and a former Assistant Editor, Chief Leader Writer and columnist for The Times.

Background and career

In September 2009, Tim became special advisor to Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow.
He is currently Head of Communications and Public Affairs for the BVCA (British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association).

"Delivered his speech with humour and simplicity which made him successful in provoking much thought in the pupils about the issue China poses. He really entertained us all. A privilege to meet him."
Taunton School

Formerly chief leader writer for The Times, Tim was responsible for the opinions of the paper. He provides the ultimate "insider" knowledge of the media, politics and international affairs delivered with a famous lacerating humour.

Tim is the ultimate political insider, a man well positioned to cut through the smokescreen of spin and reveal what politicians at home and abroad are actually likely to do, not just what they say. He also holds plenty of views of his own, which he offered to the readers of The Times with an excoriating wit.
 
Before joining The Times in 1996, Tim was a lecturer in Politics specialising in American and British politics and international relations. As Assistant Editor of The Times he also wrote extensively for the paper’s travel pages.
