Biography

Scottish journalist and editor-in-chief of the Sunday Express for 32 years, having previously worked as a columnist there. He then moved to The Mail on Sunday. He was brutally forthright and known for his trenchant right-wing views which often got himself into trouble: On 24 January 1957, Junor was called to the Bar of the House of Commons to be reprimanded for contempt of Parliament, the last non-politician so censured, for which he apologised. He was also censured in May 1985 by the Press Council for a racist anti-Irish comment regarding the IRA Brighton bombing of 12th October 1984 which failed in its aim to kill UK Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

He was knighted in 1980 and died in 1997.
