Toby Young
- Favourite Briton.

Born on 17th of October 1963

A journalist with experience at The Times, Spectator, Modern Review (he was a founder), Vanity Fair and many others, Young has also become a godsend for TV producers needing acerbic social commentary. Young has a particular interest in school age education, after his own in the early years was (initially) less than stellar. He eventually (and by his own account fortuitously) was able to study at Brasenose College Oxford, and thereafter, with a first in PPE to his name, at Harvard. He is a founder of the West London Free School.
