Sonia Purnell

Author, Broadcaster and Commentator

Sonia Purnell is perhaps best known in the UK for her investigative work on Boris Johnson, the first to point out his ambition and flaws. She has, however, covered a huge range of stories in politics, diplomacy and many other fields. She is credited with being fair, accurate and persistent and has an unshakeable belief in the importance of good journalism to hold the powerful to account. Sonia is also an author of several other acclaimed non-fiction books, the last one, A Woman of No Importance, residing in the New York Times bestseller list for many months.
