Tim Shipman is the former Political Editor of the Sunday Times, and currently its Chief Political Commentator. He has been a national newspaper journalist since 1997 and in fifteen years writing about politics he has also reported from Westminster for the Daily Mail and the Sunday Express. Tim was Washington correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph during Barack Obama’s historic first election campaign. He has covered four general elections, three presidential elections, two wars and more leadership contests than he can count. He popularised the word “omnishambles” in Westminster long before George Osborne based a budget on the idea. Tim was Chairman of the Parliamentary Press Gallery in 2012. He was shortlisted for the political journalist of the year award at the British Press Awards in both 2015 and 2016. He lives in South East London with his wife and more than two thousand books.

His latest book Fall Out: A Year of Political Mayhem, which chronicles the political consequences of the EU referendum and resulting snap election, was published in 2017 by HarperCollins.
