I’m pleased to announce a new Guest of Honour, Robin Aitken. Rick Bradford (aka William Collins) and I interviewed him yesterday, and he’ll be joining us for a live Q&A. His short biography:
“Robin Aitken was a BBC reporter for 25 years ending up on the Today Programme under editor Rod Liddle. His experience at the BBC turned him into one of the Corporation’s best-informed critics. Since leaving the BBC he has published a series of books about the Corporation; the first , in 2007, was ‘Can We Trust the BBC? and the most recent, in 2020, The Noble Liar – how and why the BBC distorts the news to promote a liberal agenda.
He now works as a freelance and writes regularly for the Daily Telegraph and other newspapers and magazines. In 2016 Robin was awarded an MBE for his part in setting up The Oxford Food Bank – a food recovery charity. He is married with two daughters and lives in Oxford.”
