Nick Cohen – Our Friends on the Left

Posted on January 20, 2006 by



Nick Cohen is a columnist for the Observer and New Statesman. He does occasional pieces for many other publications, including the London Evening Standard and New Humanist. Cruel Britannia: Reports on the Sinister and the Preposterous, a collection of his journalism, was published by Verso in 1999, and Pretty Straight Guys, a history of Britain under Tony Blair, was published by Faber in 2003.

Our Friends on the Left, an examination of agonies, idiocies and compromises of mainstream liberal thought will be published by 4th Estate in 2006. Ascerbic, funny and uncompromising, Nick Cohen’s forensic political journalism makes him one of the sharpest writers on the British left.
