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.

Between 2018-2021, I was a frequent contributor to Radio Sputnik’s political programming, mainly to discuss issues and developments around Brexit.

During 2019, I worked as a reporter and analyst on Talk Radio’s live overnight coverage of by-elections in Newport West, Peterborough and Brecon and Radnorshire.

From March 2021, I made occasional appearances on RT UK and RT International to discuss matters relating to Wales and Welsh politics, but I have refused to appear on the channel since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

I also make appearances on a number of UK and international TV channels to discuss political matters, including Talk TV, EKOTÜRK and, before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Russia 1. I also appeared in several episodes of 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.
