Peter Hitchens is famous for his bold & obstinate style mainly on politics and social conservatism issues.

Along with studying politics at York University, Peter Hitchens had been a very active member of Trotskyist International Socialists (1969-1975).

Once during the lectures at the university he came late and when asked for the reason he mentioned, “I was too busy starting a revolution”. Peter deliberately describes himself as a Burkean conservative. Pursuing his revolutionary and conservative ideas he started to work at extreme-left in left-wing politics.

In 1977, Hitchens joined the British Labor Party and within the same year he acquired a reporting job at a British tabloid newspaper, The Daily Express. The beginning of his work comprised of education and industrial labor issues. Later in the year, he started reporting politics and subsequently became Deputy Political Editor.

In 1983, he left the British Labor Party as he was directly encompassing parliamentary affairs. After a while he started reporting foreign diplomatic and defense issues including the US military intervention in Somalia, last final months of the Soviet Union and last few days of racial segregation in South Africa in the early 90s to name a few. He then became the Washington correspondent at The Daily Express.

Hitchens has written and published six books since 1999. His two books, The Abolition of Britain (1999) and A Brief History of Crime (2003) were comprised of British society’s changes since 1960. Another book is Monday Morning Blues (2000) which is a conspectus of his columns written for the Daily Express. Three other books are The Broken Compass: How British Politics Lost its Way (2009), The Rage Against God (2010) and The War We Never Fought (2012).

Peter Hitchens is still working with The Mail on Sunday as a weekly columnist and writes as a foreign correspondent occasionally.
