Biography:

About: Hugo Young was The Guardian's senior political commentator. Alan Rusbridger, editor of the Guardian, said: "Hugo was, simply, a towering figure in British journalism. His twice-weekly Guardian column was the sharpest, best informed and most humane political column in any newspaper in this country. To lose him at the peak of his powers is a shattering blow for us and for his family."
