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.
