Paul Conroy is a photojournalist and documentary maker, who began his career in the military. He has worked in warzones all over the world, taking photographs and making films for the BBC, Sky TV and the Sunday Times, amongst others.

Conroy was one of the first journalists to enter Libya when the uprising there began in 2011, and his talents meant he was soon teamed with the Sunday Times’ Marie Colvin, hailed as the greatest war reporter of his generation. The pair smuggled themselves into the besieged city of Misrata at a time when most of the foreign press corps had decided it was too dangerous to stay. They ended up covering the brutal shelling of the city for two months, longer than any other journalist team. He spent the next six months working in Libya with Colvin, before working together again in Syria in early 2012 to report on the atrocities being committed. It was to be the pair’s last assignment together. Colvin was killed in a rocket attack in Homs, Syria in February 2012.

Paul’s memoir, Under the Wire, was published by Quercus in June 2013.

There were higher excess deaths in 2020 that at any time since 1945. Tell that to the minimisers and denialists. Excess deaths mean unnecessary deaths. 85,000 people

Indeed. I used to think “The Thick of It” was satire. It’s now very clear that it could not be clearer that it is a documentary. Clearly. https://twitter.com/IainDale/status/1349045548767203338

It seems like some of the 'it's all over' and 'herd immunity' crowds are deleting their old tweets.

It would be a real shame if someone had made a living timeline of their dangerous claims.

A real shame.

What is this? @Jacob_Rees_Mogg unlawfully asked the Queen to close down Parliament and now shuts down a key committee. Our democracy is under attack from a Government that does not respect the rule of law aided by a man who supported Trump. https://twitter.com/joannaccherry/status/1347629423240097808

This is the new variant spread in the U.K., starting DURING the November “lockdown”.

London is particularly terrifying.

The system for getting supplies to Northern Ireland may be 5 days from collapse due to the Irish Sea border & will result in empty shelves, hauliers have warned Michael Gove in a grimly explicit 11-page haulage industry report seen by the News Letter. https://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/politics/system-getting-supplies-northern-ireland-may-be-five-days-collapset-due-irish-sea-border-hauliers-warn-michael-gove-3090602

Covid/lockdown/*amend as required* sceptics give scepticism a bad name. They are mostly just toddlers who want fame or people who said something silly and now can’t admit they were wrong.

I can’t think of a single news outlet that’s done more damage to carers than TalkRadio.
