Muhajababes, Stratton’s non-fiction book, was published in 2006. Her observations were based on her 2005 visit to the region. This book looked at the young people of the Muslim Middle East and their conflicts with modern life.
In 2012, Stratton returned to the BBC as political editor of Newsnight. In the same year, we received a lot of flak. A single woman collecting housing benefits was among the interviewees. Stratton ridiculed the interviewee over a misrepresentation, according to the interviewee. Stratton received a lot of backlash as a result of this incident, which she addressed afterward. She left the BBC in November 2015 to become the National Editor of ITV News.
In 2011, Stratton married James Forsyth, the Spectator’s Political Editor. The couple and their two children live in Canonbury, North London. Allegra Stratton is a British journalist who the public expected to see a lot more of after the Prime Minister hired the Chancellor’s former head of communications to host the government’s new televised press briefings in the style of the White House. Stratton has been thrust into the limelight this week after appearing in a leaked video of a mock televised press briefing in which she was caught joking about a Downing Street Christmas party that supposedly took place last winter — when such gatherings were outlawed.
