Brendan O'Neill is the editor of British internet magazine Spiked, and a contributing writer for publications from The Spectator to the New Statesman. A lapsed Catholic, he has expressed nostalgia for the social glue provided by religion and decried today's pervasive moral relativism.
O'Neill began his career at Spiked's predecessor, Living Marxism, which was also the mouthpiece of the Revolutionary Communist Party. He has wielded a number of controversial opinions in his career, true to Living Marxism's original mandate "to go against the grain". He has criticised environmentalism, anti-racist efforts within football, and the legalisation of same-sex marriage in Australia.
