About Kevin Maguire

Kevin Maguire is one of the country's best known journalists. The Daily Mirror associate editor and New Statesman columnist is on TV and Radio most days and is a regular on Good Morning Britain and Sky News' Press Preview. Still calling South Shields "home", Kevin's back regularly and is a visiting professor at Sunderland University. Famed and feared for his trenchant views and piercing wit, before returning to the Mirror to take up his current position, he was Chief Reporter on The Guardian and previously Labour Correspondent of the Daily Telegraph following jobs on a national news agency and a local newspaper. He's appeared on Have I Got News for You and Question Time and programmes presented include a BBC Time Shift episode on Tyneside.

About Martin Rowson

Martin Rowson is a multi-award winning political cartoonist, illustrator, author, muralist, broadcaster and poet. His work is currently appearing regularly in The Guardian, where he's lead the lead editorial cartoonist, The Daily Mirror and Byline Times, although over the past 40 years he's been published by every national daily newspaper except The Sun (they never asked him) and in most magazines you can think of, from The Spectator to The Erotic Review, except for Private Eye (don't ask).  He's either authored, illustrated or contributed to over 60 books and over the years has collaborated regularly and fruitfully with Will Self, Andrew Gimson, Philippe Sands and, less directly, with T S Eliot, Laurence Sterne, Jonathan Swift and Karl Marx in a series of comic book adaptations of The Waste Land, Tristram Shandy, Gulliver's Travels and The Communist Manifesto.
