About me

Welcome to my website.

dhh22I started this blog because I wanted a platform to share a few random thoughts from time to time; largely related to my travels and issues revolving around foreign policy.

This is a personal website, though and is in no way linked to my employer.

I previously served as Director of a Westminster-based civil liberties think tank Big Brother Watch and Head of European Insight at a leading opinion polling and political research consultancy ComRes.

I’ve worked in both Westminster and European Parliament and was flattered to be praised in the Total Politics Guide to the 2010 General Election as having a “remarkable, encyclopaedic knowledge” of politics.  I am the co-author (with Iain Dale and Greg Callus) of the “Politico’s Guide to the 2015 General Election”.

pic12An active member of the British Conservative Party, I served as a local councillor on Runnymede Borough Council from 2007 to 2011.  I contested the 2014 European elections as a Conservative Party candidate in the North West of England.

I’ve appeared on the Today Programme, the World at One, BBC News, Sky News, ITV News, Fox News, Bloomberg, MSNBC and CNN. He was Al Jazeera’s political commentator on the evening of the 2010 British election, broadcasting continuously for over ten hours.

I’ve worked on political campaigns in the United States, Serbia and Brazil and am a regular commentator on frozen conflict zones and the political situation in South America, the Caucasus and the Balkans.

Away from work, I enjoys independent travel, spending time by the sea and live jazz. I am a Freeman of the City of London and hold British, French and Brazilian citizenship.

    Hello Mr. Hamilton,

    I was wondering if you would by any chance let me know how you planned your trip throughout central asia, and what sites you saw, and how to rent a car and so on and so forth. Please if you would have the time, it would be most helpful and pleasing. I very much hope to visit those nations myself very soon. I read your articles, but I feel lost in how I can organize this trip. Mainly to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.

    All the best

    Many thanks for your entries on the Mercosur countries. I got the inspiration for a trip to Paraguay from your blog. We just did a day trip from Iguazu- three Brits, one Irish woman, a German and a Peruvian.
