I began my career as a journalist at the end of 1969 and so, naturally, I
have written many thousands of words. Probably millions. But I thought it
worth while to scatter just a few examples here. All the rest exists
somewhere - the reportage and profiles for the New Statesman in the
seventies as well as articles for Nova, the Daily Telegraph Magazine and
countless newspapers and magazines. Then there was the Daily Mirror 1979-80;
Sunday Times and Times through the eighties. And so on.
It gives me quiet pride and pleasure to say I have written for every single
national newspaper except the Sun, the People, the News of the World and the
Star. I think good journalists should be like chameleons, able to change
instinctively. Journalism was my first love and will probably be my last
love, but there's room for all the books too.
At the moment I am writing my column, comment pieces and features and book
reviews for the Daily Mail. There's no point putting this work on this site
as it is all available in Mail Online, if you put my name in the search.
It's boring to have to do that I know, but nearly so boring as me having to
put it here! So what follows is just a flavour of some of the many articles
I have written and there is something here for all tastes.
