From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Madeleine Bunting is an English journalist and writer who is an Associate Editor and columnist on The Guardian.

Born in Oswaldkirk, North Yorkshire, Bunting was educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, where she read History, and won a Knox postgraduate fellowship to study Politics and teach at Harvard. After a period working for Brooks Productions (1988-89) she joined The Guardian taking up posts as a news reporter, leader writer, religious affairs editor, associate editor and regular columnist.

Bunting was appointed Director of the London based think tank Demos in June 2006 and took up her position at the beginning of September. The following month she resigned, owing to differences with the trustees over the direction of the organisation. Bunting returned to her old position at The Guardian and is writing a book about the history of an area where she grew up.[1]

Mareleine Bunting was formerly married to Patrick Wintour, political editor of The Guardian.



Bunting is noted for her advocacy of religious belief from a liberal position and her antipathy to atheism, claiming that atheists' antipathy to religion makes it impossible for them to criticise religion effectively.[2] She has been very critical of abuse committed within the Catholic Church in Ireland.
