Julia is Assistant Editor and columnist on The Sunday Express. As well as regular guest appearances on everything from 'Have I Got News For You' to 'Question Time', she has presented a documentary about Deputy Prime Ministers called 'Every Prime Minister Needs A Willie'. She began her career on an East London newspaper, where she answered calls from Reggie Kray ringing in from Maidstone Prison. She left for the more glamorous role of reporter on Londoner's Diary at 'The Standard', before graduating to political stories on 'The Guardian' and then 'The Express.'
With a nod towards both 'West Wing' and 'Yes Minister', Julia's highly entertaining after dinner speeches reveal which Cabinet member routinely ordered two main courses at dinner - and how journalists invent new words deliberately to trip up politicians at press conferences.
