Simon Marks is a reporter for the European edition of Politico (Baseline : «Politics. Policy. Power.» Bam!) He writes about food safety and agriculture and helps out reporting on Brexit. He previously covered out reporting on Brexit. He previously covered the European Commission for the news agency Market News International. Yeah, he’s just another guy from Belfast who moved to Brussels out of love… and speaks fluent Khmer. Indeed, he spent five years as reporter and editor for the Cambodia Daily in Phnom Penh. His investigation for Newsweek article Sex, Lies and a Slippery Truth in 2014 brought the New York Times to make a rare apology. He also contributes long-form investigations for The Guardian.
