Peter Foster

Europe Editor, The London Daily Telegraph


I’m the Europe Editor at The Telegraph and have been an journalist for 25 years, about half of that time internationally. I started on The Shropshire Star and then joined The Times in 1995. I currently cover Brexit, though despite working for the Teelgraph am not a Brexiteer, which can surprise people. Before coming back to Europe I spent over a decade travelling the world. Four years in New Delhi and South Asia (2004-08), three years in Beijing and China (2009-12) and three years in Washington DC covering the US political scene (2012-15). In that time I covered two wars, two tsunamis and two Olympic Games. I now appear on TV and Radio as a pundit, recent appearances include BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, PM and the World Tonight as well as TalkRadio and LBC. And for television BBC Breakfast, All Out Politics on Sky TV and The Daily Politics.
