Brendan O'Neill

Brendan O'Neill is editor of spiked, the London-based online magazine described by the New York Times as "fond of puncturing all manner of ideological balloons". He is also a columnist for the Big Issue in London, a writer for the London Spectator, and a blogger for the Daily Telegraph. His journalism has been published widely on both sides of the Atlantic. The Daily Mail calls him "one of Britain's leading left-wing thinkers" while the Guardian says he is a "sub-Danny Dyer intellectual wind-up merchant". His satire on green living - Can I Recycle My Granny and 39 Other Eco-Dilemmas - was published by Hodder & Stoughton and described by the BBC as "a skidmark on the gusset of environmentalism".
