Quentin Letts career
Letts has contributed articles to numerous British newspapers since 1987. His first position was with The Daily Telegraph’s Peterborough diary section.
He worked as a New York reporter for The Times for two years, from 1995 to 1997. Up until 2001, he produced a parliamentary parody for The Daily Telegraph.
Letts was then hired by the Daily Mail’s editor, Paul Dacre, to revive the paper’s own parliamentary sketches, a feature that, according to Letts, had been dormant at the publication since 1990.
He was the first contributor to the Mail’s 2006-launched Clement Crabbe column under the alias, and since 2004, at Dacre’s suggestion, he has also served as the paper’s theater critic.
He has been a freelancer since 1997, and by the middle of 2006, he had been routinely contributing to The News of the World and Horse & Hound. Stephen Glover claims that he has contributed rumors to various diary sections.
Letts called BBC journalist Andrew Marr “Captain-Hop-Along, growling away on BBC One, throwing his arm about like a tipsy conductor” in the print and online editions of the Daily Mail in 2016.
Letts later expressed regret for the remarks while Marr was recovering from a stroke he had in 2013.
Letts was asked to host a segment of the BBC current affairs show Panorama that aired on April 20, 2009, and which addressed the growing disapproval of the impact of health and safety on several facets of British life.
Additionally, he frequently appeared on BBC shows including This Week (with Andrew Neil) and Have I Got News For You.
He hosts a show on BBC Radio Four called What’s the Point Of… where he explores the motivations behind different British organizations.
The BBC Trust judged a 2015 episode of the series to be in “serious breach” of BBC regulations on impartiality and accuracy, and it was not replayed after its initial transmission and removed from the BBC iPlayer.
It’s a little Orwellian, Letts told The Times. Their nefarious attempts to manipulate cognition have an amateurish quality.
Letts’ UK publisher Constable & Robinson has helped him publish a number of books, including 50 People Who Buggered Up Britain and Bog-Standard Britain.
The latter was deemed “a waste of everyone’s time” and “a bog-standard rant about exactly those subjects one would expect a Daily Mail columnist to rant about” by Brandon Robshaw in The Independent.
50 People who Made Mistakes Britain was described as “an angry book, beautifully written” in The Spectator, a journal for which Letts writes. It has sold about 45,000 copies.
Chris Bryant, a Labour politician, called his 2015 book The Speaker’s Wife, which is about Parliament and the Church of England, “rollicking” in The Guardian.
He attacked the British ruling class in his nonfiction book, Patronising Bastards: How The Elites Betrayed Britain, which was released in October 2017.
He was questioned during a BBC Radio 4 interview for the Today program why Paul Dacre, a longtime editor of one of Britain’s best-selling newspapers and a former employer of Letts, wasn’t mentioned in the book.
