Stephen Pollard (born c1965) is a British author and journalist, currently editor of The Jewish Chronicle. He is a former Chairman of The European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and a former president of the Centre for the New Europe, a free-market think tank based in Brusselsmarker. He has written columns for several publications including The Times and the Daily Mail and maintains a lively blog. He is an alumnus of John Lyon Schoolmarker and Mansfield College, Oxfordmarker.

Pollard is an advocate of market-based based public service reforms. He is also a frequent commentator on Israelmarker, and a critic of Jihadist movement among Muslims. On the 15 January 2009 edition of Question Time he debated with Jenny Tonge about the recent Gaza hostilities of 2008/09.

Formerly a journalist and leader-writer on the Daily Express, he left that paper in 2001 soon after it was taken over by Richard Desmond, a publisher of pornographic magazines, who began implementing radical cutbacks. His last leader for the paper, on the problems of the British farming industry, turned out to contain the words "Fuck you Desmond" spelt out with the first letter of each sentence. His job at The Times was withdrawn as they considered this to be unacceptable and insulting.

The fact of his having written for the Fabian Review in 1993 ("More Southern Discomfort"), discussing ways by which the Labour Party could reform itself sufficiently to regain power, suggests that his career has seen a fair degree of political movement from Left to Right; he was formerly an advisor to anti-EU Labour politician Peter Shore. He was one of the signatory founders 2005 of the Henry Jackson Society which advocates a proactive approach to the spread of liberal democracy across the world. By 2006 he held the view that in the 'battle to save western civilisation' the "The Left, in any recognisable form, is now the enemy". His biography of Labour Party politician David Blunkett, with the subject's involvement, was published in 2004.

In November 2008 Pollard became editor of the Jewish Chronicle. In a 2009 New York Times review of a book by Bruce Bawer, Pollard endorses the idea that Liberal appeasement is paving the way for a replacement of European civilization by Islamic culture.[203796]
