Once worked in Houses of Parliament for two Conservative MPs
Then moved to Brussels to work in Europarl for a UKIP MEP
Now meddling in the private sector, writing for Telegraph Blogs and selling the odd article
Disciple of Auberon Herbert, the author of The Voluntaryist Creed and A Plea for Voluntaryism
Anarcho-Capitalist, much to the amusement of Telegraph Blogs comments

Former Tory preamble:
Having supported and campaigned for the Conservatives since 16, having held various elected positions within Conservative Future – including National Deputy Chairman (political) – and having worked in the Westminster offices of two Conservative MPs, I jumped ship to UKIP.
Following my defection speech, Michael White of The Guardian rather kindly described me as ‘The Future Face of UKIP‘
I left the Conservative Party because I no longer believe it is the party of freedom, aspiration, wealth creation and individualism; because I believe Cameron is doing to the Conservative Party what Gladstone did to the Liberals; because UKIP is the only party that promotes the values that originally led me to the Conservatives and because this ‘Conservative-led’ government submits to every liberal-left piety imaginable.
