Meet Laura Kuenssberg: the most famous face in British political journalism

POLITICO’s Ailbhe Rea meets the ultimate Westminster Insider, Laura Kuenssberg, until recently the BBC’s political editor and the new host of the BBC’s flagship Sunday politics show.

In a rare interview, Kuenssberg discusses her early career, life covering the tumult of the past seven years in British politics, and how she managed to survive the relentless pace at the coalface. She discusses the sisterhood in Westminster, how it feels to be at the center of heated rows about bias and impartiality, and reveals what she really thought of British comedian Joe Lycett’s controversial appearance on her debut show.
