The BBC Deputy Political Editor, Radio 5 live's Chief Political Correspondent and the presenter of Pienaar's Politics, John Pienaar is a tour guide and translator of goings-on in the Westminster village.

A well-connected and respected figure, he combines explanation of the key themes of politics with the authority of a seasoned insider, who sees his job as carving a path through the forest of Government spin.

He is ideally positioned to give the inside scoop on the political scene through his  after dinner speaking  and  conference speaking . In his after-dinner talk, he imagines what would happen if the public were to vote for MPs by means of a reality TV show.

Hilarious and insightful, John opens a door into the inner workings of parliament.

A former Political Correspondent for The Independent, John penned their cutting and often controversial parliamentary sketch, Westminster Diary.

John originally trained at the South London Press, where he wrote about whatever was happening on his doorstep: urban crime, domestic violence, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. He then became an Old Bailey Correspondent and even wrote an angling column (without ever having held a fishing rod in his life).

Having interviewed several of the key players around the Brexit Debate, including  Boris Johnson , John is well-suited to discuss Britain’s future outside of the EU.

The ideal after-dinner speaker  for all kinds of political events, John is an expert on the changing face of the current landscape.
