Errol Parker is the Editor-at-Large of The Betoota Advocate – the nation’s oldest newspaper. He cofounded the digital edition of the paper in 2014 with Clancy Overall, The Advocate’s Editor-in-Chief.
Prior to The Advocate, Errol worked at The News of the World and The Sun in the United Kingdom, where he says he learned his craft and developed a unique taste for quality journalism. His rapid professional demise from Fleet Street and subsequent deportation from England is something he feels ‘affected’ his current outlook on the media industry as a whole. Born in Hong Kong to a homely Cathay Pacific stewardess and a prominent Namibian arms dealer, Parker rarely returns home to Sheung Wan but enjoys travelling on his Chinese passport whenever he can.
He survives by his memories of a better time and a blind English Sheepdog named Dog.
