Dominic Ralph Campden Lawson is a British journalist and editor who was exposed as working for the MI6. He is married to Rosa Monckton, a close friend of deep state actor and sexual blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein since the early 1980s.
Lawson was born to a Jewish family, the elder son of Conservative politician Nigel Lawson, Baron Lawson of Blaby and his first wife, socialite Vanessa Salmon. He was educated at Eton College, an all-boys independent boarding school, for one year, which he "absolutely hated". He then completed his schooling at Westminster School, also an independent school. He studied history at Christ Church, Oxford. Lawson had three sisters: the TV chef and writer Nigella Lawson; Horatia; and Thomasina (who died of breast cancer in 1993 in her early 30s). Their mother, an heir to the Lyons Corner House empire, died from liver cancer in 1985. Lawson's father was Chancellor of the Exchequer between 1983 and 1989.
Lawson was married to Jane Whytehead from 1982 until 1991.
He has been married to Rosa Monckton, a close friend of deep state actor and sexual blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein since the early 1980s. Rosa Monckton, a Roman Catholic, is the daughter of the 2nd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, since 1991. The Lawsons have two daughters (another daughter, Natalia, was stillborn), Domenica Marianna Tertia and Savannah Vanessa Lucia; Domenica, who is a goddaughter of Diana, Princess of Wales was born with Down syndrome.
From 1995 until 2005, Lawson was editor of The Sunday Telegraph. In 2006, he started to write columns for The Independent newspaper and in 2008, he became the main columnist for The Sunday Times. In his article for The Independent dated 2 September 2013, he wrote that it would be his last for that newspaper, although he did not give a reason.
Lawson's MI6 identity was "Smallbrow".
In 1994, the Spectator ran articles by an MI6 officer under a false name during the Bosnian war. The articles were written from Sarajevo by under the pen name Kenneth Roberts, who has since been publicly identified as Keith Craig.
