Political Analyst

Politics has played an important role in my life since childhood. In 2002, I obtained a grade A A-level in Government and Politics. Three years later, I obtained a 2:1 degree in Politics and Communication Studies from The University of Liverpool.

Since September 2019, I have been a frequent contributor to the popular online political magazine Spiked, where I primarily commentate on matters relating to Welsh politics.

In addition, I am a frequent contributor to British satirical magazine Private Eye.

I make regular appearances on TV and radio as a political analyst, both in the UK and internationally.

Since July 2018, I have been a frequent contributor to Radio Sputnik’s political programming and during 2019, I worked on Talk Radio’s live overnight coverage of by-elections in Newport West, Peterborough and Brecon and Radnorshire. In March 2021, I appeared for the first time as a political commentator on RT UK, where I discussed devolution in Wales and wider Welsh affairs.

I have also made appearances on a number of international TV channels to discuss Brexit, including Russia 1 and EKOTÜRK, along with several appearances on the BBC Wales debate programme The Hour.

From June 2018 until May 2019, I presented the Brexit Briefing podcast, and since June 2019, Brexit and other political matters have been the basis of the weekly Twenty Minute Topic podcast, which I continue to co-present.

I am the author of the Sovereignty UK website, which contains a series of in-depth analytical articles about the implications of Brexit, and during the mid-2010s, I also wrote a number of articles for the website BackBench.
