Matthew Parris: "Affording journalistic principles"

Raleigh Addington

Former diplomat and Conservative MP Matthew Parris‘ diary column in The Times is an enjoyable read. Written with light-hearted yet sharp observations of current affairs, it is also an insight into his world.

Great to read Matthew’s honesty in today’s column, titled “I’m so glad I can afford journalistic principles” – “I can afford principle now. The people I really admire are the young men and women who cannot afford principle  but still do the right thing.”

Matthew discusses a debate with Nigel Farage on name pronunciation and re-branding, a conversation with a Korean friend on Europe’s difficultly to take North Korean threats seriously, and whether police officers should comment on court verdicts.
