Politics

All people deserve the chance to become politically informed, and this belief underlines all of my work on this subject.

Politics is my passion – and I achieved a First Class Honours in the subject from Durham University.

I believe that it is journalism’s job to provide clear and accessible information about politics and those who govern us to an audience.

Where you can find my political journalism

  • Researcher at Sky News for Sophy Ridge on Sunday – collating facts, figures and context of political issues and creating concise briefs for the show’s host. Drafting questions for senior political figures.

  • Contributor and General Editor at Backbench (Please note: these articles are no longer live on the site, and should you wish to read some of my pieces, I can provide them upon request).

  • In Conversation with Alastair Campbell for Beep – watch here.

My ‘Mastering Politics’ column is written for non-expert readers. I aim to explain concepts (like ‘what actually is the government?’ and ‘what’s a party whip?’) in simple, impartial ways. I created guides for each mainstream political party and economic system too.
