JDB on Sky News Discussing Obama at the DMZ

As the clocks went forward in the UK this morning I was up at the crack of dawn to offer some analysis of President Obama’s visit to the Korean Peninsula and his appearance at the notorious DMZ (De-Militarized Zone).

For those of you who were not up at 8.00 on a Sunday morning, here is the interview in full:



JDB on David Cameron’s Trip To Washington (Part Two)

Finally, my feet hit the floor after a long day of writing and interviews. BBC, LBC and Sky News all on one day, running around trying to get some writing done in the process. Anyway, here is my on-air work with Kay Burley from Sky News this afternoon. Enjoy!



JDB to address the Henry Jackson Society in Cambridge tonight

I am delighted to announce that I will be addressing the Henry Jackson Society members at Cambridge University this evening.

I am honoured to have been invited by Jonathan Bronitsky and Brendan Simms to discuss U.S. politics with such an august group of people.

My talk, entitled, Process, Primaries and the Presidency, will address the events so far and consider the candidacies of Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, as well as Newt Gingrich. I will assess the Republican chances for success in November and the likelihood of Obama’s re-election. It is likely that foreign policy will be addressed so discussions of the forthcoming meeting between Obama and Netanyahu and the state of U.S-Israeli relations may be tabled.

The event is at 5.30 this evening at Pembroke College.

The Launch of JDB-TV!

I am very pleased to announce the long planed-for JDB-TV on You Tube, a site that will feature my TV and Radio appearances.

If you have missed them in the past, then they will now be available for your viewing pleasure by clicking here!

The site will grow as I add more of my previous appearances and as I make new ones in the coming months, so do keep checking for updates.

JDB and the Bow Group

As some eagle-eyed visitors to my LinkedIn site have already noted, I am delighted to announce my appointment with immediate effect, as Liaison Officer at the prestigious Bow Group. As the oldest – and one of the most influential – centre-right Think-Tanks in Britain, the Bow Group exists to develop policy, publish research and stimulate debate. As Liaison Officer I will be working to enhance and expand the reach of the organisation both domestically and internationally in academia, business and the wider think tank arena.

This is a major development in my efforts to make research relevent and will allow me to further develop the skill sets that I have been developing in the last fifteen years.
