Owen Jones



How can we build societies run in the interests of working people, not run as a racket for the mean and the greedy at the top? The popular Guardian columnist and author of Chavs and The Establishment shines some light on a positive way forward.

"Owen Jones was born in Sheffield and grew up in Stockport. He is a columnist at the Guardian and formerly at the Independent, and the author of Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class. His new book, The Establishment – And How They Get Away With It, was published in September 2014. He was the winner of the 2012 Stonewall Journalist of the Year and 2013 Political Book Awards Young Writer of the Year. He is now working on his third book, The Politics of Hope."
