Bruce Anderson, the John Bull of British journalism, is a political columnist who has been a leviathan of the national press for almost half a century; a one-time Marxist, he built a reputation as the sword-bearer of the Right and yet was a staunch advocate of Remain.

Born on Orkney in 1949, Bruce was educated at Campbell College, Belfast and Emmanuel College, Cambridge where he read History.

As a journalist, Bruce has written widely, but most recently for The Independent, The Daily Mail, Boisdale Life and The London Magazine.

One time political editor of The Spectator and widely read blogger for the publication, Bruce is now one of the magazine's most popular columnists as he holds court through the affable and enjoyable articles he writes every other week for Drink!
