John Harris is a journalist and author whose work appears regularly in The Guardian, for whom he has worked since 2005. His writing mixtures commentary and reportage, and tends to focus on the gap between politics and everyday life, along with the economic factors that inform rising public disconnection from the political process. He is the author of two acclaimed books – The Last Party (2003), and So Now Who Do We Vote For? (2005), and a regular voice on BBC-radio, and is also the co-creator of The Guardian’s video series Anywhere But Westminster, which has pioneered a model of political journalism deliberately rooted well away from centres of power.
John Harris was selected for the 2017 European Press Prize shortlist with ‘If you’ve got money, you vote in … if you haven’t got money, you vote out’ and for the 2018 shortlist with ‘Six articles about Brexit‘
