Christopher John Penrice Booker (7 October 1937 – 3 July 2019) was a British journalist and author. In 1961, he was one of the founders of the satirical magazine Private Eye, and has contributed to it since then. He has been a columnist for The Sunday Telegraph since 1990. Booker was a global warming denier, and also took a stance which runs counter to the scientific consensus on a number of other issues, including the link between passive smoking and cancer, and the dangers posed by asbestos. In 2009, he published The Real Global Warming Disaster.

In collaboration with Richard North, Booker wrote a variety of publications advancing a eurosceptic, though academically disputed, popular historiography of the European Union. The most well-known of these is The Great Deception, which considers the European Union. In addition there are related books The Castle of Lies (1997)

The UK Family Courts and the Social Services often featured in his Sunday Telegraph section.
