Ever caught yourself tongue-tied? Phillip Collins is just the man for the job. Sharp and well-informed, Philip spent years in Tony Blair’s inner circle as his chief speech writer, penning Blair’s farewell speech as Leader of the Labour Party. Speeches don’t just have a political use; they can change the world, and Philip knows just that, offering analyses of major speeches for national newspapers.
Philip is now a lead writer and columnist for The Times, a Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics, and an associate editor of Prospect magazine.
His book Start Again: How We Can Fix Our Broken Politics, is a “a life-raft for all those who find themselves politically adrift and a rallying cry for a better kind of politics”.
