Isabel Oakeshott Daily Mail
Oakeshott began her career in journalism working in Scotland for the East Lothian Courier, Edinburgh Evening News, Daily Record, Sunday Mirror, and Daily Mail, before returning to London and joining the Evening Standard as the Health correspondent.
After three years, Oakeshott moved to The Sunday Times in 2006 as deputy political editor, becoming political editor in 2010, and remained until 2014. Oakeshott was awarded the title “Political Journalist of the Year” at 2011 The Press Awards.
In 2013, while at The Sunday Times, she persuaded Vicky Pryce to implicate her estranged husband, former Liberal Democrat MP and Cabinet minister Chris Huhne, in having committed the offense of perverting the course of justice, leading to the case R v Huhne, and to both Pryce and Huhne being convicted and imprisoned.
Oakeshott has also appeared as a panelist on the BBC’s Daily Politics, as well as on BBC TV’s Question Time, and has been a contributor to Sky News’ Press Preview program.
Between February 2016 and early 2017, Oakeshott was the Daily Mail’s political editor-at-large. In 2019, she wrote a series of articles for The Mail on Sunday based on leaked diplomatic memos written by the British Ambassador to the United States Sir Kim Darroch, where he criticized the Trump administration. The leak led to his resignation.
In July 2019 The Guardian amended an article by its parliamentary sketch writer John Crace which contained a sentence that had potentially implied that Oakeshott obtained the Darroch emails by sleeping with Nigel Farage or Arron Banks. At the time, she called the comment “demonstrably false and extraordinarily sexist”. The newspaper later apologized to Oakeshott.
In October 2021, she joined GB News as the presenter of the Friday lunchtime political program The Briefing with Isabel Oakeshott, hosting 22 hour-long episodes up until the end of March 2022.
