A minor cog in the Coalition Government. In seven years with the Liberal Democrats I was at times Nick Clegg’s speechwriter, the party’s Head of Media, a much maligned No 10 SpAd and a writer of unfunny jokes, mixed metaphors and borderline unprofessional tweets. Before that I was a reporter for the Dover Express and Kent on Sunday.
This blog is mostly an outlet for me to tell some stories about politics and journalism, both of which are absurd and fascinating professions. It may feature my opinions from time to time but I will try to keep them to a minimum and you should feel free to ignore them. It is also possible that it may occasionally feature gratuitous mentions of West Ham United and the #cityofdreams Milton Keynes.
This is me tumbling monkeys.
