Our Comment

"Janan is recognised as one of the most exciting political commentators of his generation. His column in the Financial Times has become a 'must read' for a weekly audience of thousands. At a time of significant political uncertainty in the UK, with Scotland's referendum in 2014, a General Election in 2015 and a possible referendum on the UK's relationship with the EU in 2017, Janan provides an expert perspective and cool-headed analysis."
