Tatton Spiller

Tatton Spiller is the founder of Simple Politics, a hugely successful project that aims to explain and engage people with politics, both online and via talks. He has been a teacher and a journalist, and worked at the Houses of Parliament, devising, training and delivering education sessions for visiting school students. While at Parliament, he watched many, many debates, engaged thousands of people, and organised Q&A sessions with hundreds of MPs. He couldn’t shake off the nagging feeling that nobody was really breaking down politics in a way that engages people and so he wrote The Breakdown: Making sense of politics in a messed-up world, published by Elliott & Thompson.
