Tim Fenton has worked, lived and travelled across the UK and Europe. He is of liberal stance but not allied to any one party, sceptical of politicians and particularly of a media that serves itself before its audience. He follows politics and media both across Europe and the USA. He mostly succeeds in retaining his sense of humour, tries not to take himself or anyone else too seriously, and values listening and quiet contemplation highly. He has been known to enjoy conversation at the bar or over a meal.
