Before joining ‘Newsnight’, Paul was a print journalist, covering business in magazines and newspapers. He was deputy editor of ‘Computer Weekly’, a campaigning magazine whose investigative team regularly broke stories that made waves across government and industry. Paul’s book, ‘Live Working Or Die Fighting: How The Working Class Went Global’, tells the story of the new ‘globalised’ working class, alongside the epic history of the labour movement.

Finally Paul has two out of the office obsessions: music (he was once a professional musician) and football.
