At an exclusive Times+ online event which took place on Thursday, September 3, Times columnist Daniel Finkelstein was in conversation with Matt Chorley, discussing his book Everything In Moderation, a collection of his best-loved columns.
Award-winning journalist, Daniel Finkelstein is executive editor of The Times and a weekly political columnist. He has written some of The Times’ best-loved columns, ranging across politics, social affairs, history and popular culture. In politics, he has worked for John Major, William Hague and David Cameron, and now sits in the House of Lords. This collection gives a sharp view of the man behind the column – and an eclectic insight into what have been the biggest debate points of the modern day.
Everything In Moderation brings together Finkelstein’s most brilliant pieces, from the personal – with his articles on the deaths of both of his parents and on growing up Jewish in Britain – to the political, with columns on how to predict elections, the way political science showed us Ed Miliband was in trouble, and why the ‘base rate of coups’ meant Corbyn’s leadership was inevitable.
Daniel was in conversation with Matt Chorley who hosts the Westminster and beyond morning show on Times Radio between 10am and 1pm Monday to Thursday, and writes a weekly column for The Times.
"Thank you Matt Chorley and especially my journalist hero Danny Finkelstein. Keep on writing, both of you, and I'll keep my subscription to The Times going forward."
"This was quite superb both Danny and Matt ... one of the best if not the best in this series of event. And I'm not saying that because the first question asked was one I sent in. Keep up the good work."
"Really superb. Matt Chorley: great interview style - brought out the best in DF."
Our goal is to help to keep subscribers to The Times and The Sunday Times informed and entertained during this period and beyond through our series of live-streamed events.
