A boozy lunch with Tim Shipman

Host Jack Blanchard goes for lunch with the Sunday Times’ chief political commentator, Tim Shipman, as the deadline for his new Brexit tome approaches.

Over a bottle of claret and (medium) rare steak, Shipman discusses the art of long-form political writing; recalls his best and worst interview experiences, from Donald Trump to Theresa May; considers his favorite moments of the chaotic past decade in British politics and offers tips to aspiring journalists on how to do a “proper” political lunch.
