Welcome to my website. I’m Dr Nigel Fletcher, a political historian in every sense of the phrase. I teach politics and contemporary history at university level, and am also an experienced political practitioner.
I have worked for senior politicians, been a policy adviser, and have served in elected office myself. This experience helps me to bring a degree of practical knowledge to my work as a researcher and writer. I write widely on UK politics and political history, with published books, articles in UK national newspapers and appearances on broadcast news and current affairs programmes.
