Telegraph blogger and commentator

Former Labour Party and GMB trade union official

Contributing Editor, Labour Uncut

Dan Hodges is a British commentator, blogger and self-described “tribal neo-Blairite.” He writes a regular column for The Daily Telegraph, and is known as “David Cameron’s favourite columnist,” according to the Spectator. He is also contributing editor of Labour Uncut.

Dan has a career history of being near the heart of political debate. In the last twenty years, he has worked as a parliamentary researcher, a Labour Party official, GMB official and as director of communications for Transport for London under Ken Livingstone.

He has also been a journalist and a blogger writing for The Guardian, the New Statesman, The Daily Telegraph, The Times and Labour Uncut.

In 2014, Dan co-founded the Migration Matters Trust, a pro-immigration pressure group chaired by Barbara Roche, Lord Dhokalia and Nadhim Zahawi and run by Atul Hatwal. Dan is also a wargame designer; his first game design was “Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic which is about the Falklands War.”

Our Comment

"Dan, a veteran political consultant with extensive contacts among Conservative backbencher, is known for commenting on Labour with tribal loyalty yet without reservation. Going with the herd has never been his style, and political commentary is richer for it."
