conservatism, and lifestyle economics.

  • Lifestyle economics

    I am concerned with all things nanny state. I have written about how regulations and 'sin taxes' exhaust the resources of the night-time economy.

    Beyond policy, I also comment on how public attitudes and campaigns affect our freedom to enjoy booze and tobacco.

    I am also interested in housing and the economic forces that affect it. I have written for CapX and The Telegraph on this issue.

    As a regular contributor to The Telegraph, I frequently write about domestic education policy. This includes commentary on the Higher Education Bill and the PREVENT agenda.

    As a student, I am also interested in campus culture and student issues. I have written about student politics in the UK and broader student movements at home and abroad. This includes writing on university censorship for The Telegraph, Quillette, and Spiked Online.


    Beyond writing, I also occasionally appear on television and radio to discuss current affairs. As a broadcaster, I have spoken on RTUK, Sky News, STV, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
