Marc Champion's Biography

I'm a member of the editorial board at Bloomberg View, which I joined in early 2012. Before that I was at the Wall Street Journal for 12 years, in London covering European politics, diplomacy and security; then in Brussels as deputy bureau chief for the Brussels and Germany bureaus, editing the reporters and writing about Eastern Europe; and then as bureau chief in Istanbul in 2011/12.

U.K.'s Miliband Is Half Right on Europe

bloombergview.com — Ed Miliband, leader of the U.K.'s left-of-center Labour Party, chose to give the opening speech of his formal campaign for the May 7 election to businesspeople at Bloomberg's London headquarters this morning. That suggests he knows his weakness: Fewer than 10 percent of business leaders think a Labour-led government would be good for them, and few voters trust Labour to run the economy.

BBC's Hypocrisy Shifts Into 'Top Gear'

David Cameron's Latest Intentional Gaffe

bloombergview.com — The U.K. has been abuzz with the shock announcement by Prime Minister David Cameron that he won't run for election a third time (assuming he wins re-election for a second term in May). He dropped this political bombshell just weeks before the vote on a soft feature TV show, and was cutting carrots as he said it.

The Political Perils of a Ukraine Default

bloombergview.com — For the last 10 days, Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko has been visiting private creditors in Europe and the U.S. to explain why they should help her create a "new Ukraine," by agreeing to write off some of its debt.

U.K. Elections Are No Longer Just Class Wars

bloombergview.com — The campaign fight between the main Conservative and Labour parties ahead of elections on May 7 is being fought on very familiar ground: Economic competence for the Tories, versus fairness and a strong health service for Labour. But there's an oddity in the campaign that requires some explanation.

Guns, Poison and Putin's KGB State

bloombergview.com — The U.K. inquiry into the 2006 poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko begins final arguments on Monday. Most of the evidence produced in the hearings was known years ago. But seeing it meticulously laid out again now, after Russia's semi-covert war in Ukraine and the assassination of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, it's impossible not to notice a chilling pattern.

Champion: Do Republicans have an alternative plan for Iran? - Richmond.com: Commentary

richmond.com — A number of people have commented on the letter from 47 U.S. Republican senators to Iran about a potential nuclear deal, pointing to its inaccuracies on U.S. law, its underestimation of some very sharp U.S.-educated Iranian officials, and the appearance of disloyalty it created. Add one more criticism to the list: tactical stupidity.

Do Republicans Have a Plan B for Iran?

bloombergview.com — A number of people have commented on the letter from 47 U.S. Republican senators to Iran about a potential nuclear deal, which Bloomberg View columnist Josh Rogin brought to light yesterday. They point to the missive's inaccuracies on U.S. law, its underestimation of some very sharp U.S.-educated Iranian officials, and the appearance of disloyalty it created.

U.K. and France Should Ditch Eurostar

bloombergview.com — Britain has sold its 40 percent stake in the high-speed Eurostar train service between London, Paris and Brussels for a healthy 757 million pounds($1.15 billion). Inevitably, that has triggered complaints from commentators and labor unions that the Conservative government is " selling off the family silver." Rarely has this argument seemed so weak.
