Brendan O'Neill

Brendan O’Neill is the editor of spiked, the magazine that wants to make history as well as report it, and is a columnist for The Big Issue in London and The Australian in, er, Australia. He also blogs for the Daily Telegraph and has written for a variety of publications in both Europe and America.

He is the author of Can I Recycle My Granny And 39 Other Eco-Dilemmas, published by Hodder & Stoughton and described by the BBC as a “skidmark on the gusset of environmentalism”, and he is currently researching a book on snobbery.

He has five brothers, was the first person to complete the ZX Spectrum game Rasputin, and is the only journalist to have written for both the Catholic Herald and Abortion Review. He doesn’t tweet.
