About

“I always think of The Cure when I see one of this writer’s articles. Then I can’t help but read it in Smith’s voice. Makes more sense that way too.” – Spectator reader

Hello, I’m Robert, a London-based journalist and sub-editor. I currently work on the Daily Mail’s features desk. Before joining the paper, I worked for The Spectator during the 2015 general election. I have also been published by The Telegraph, The Huffington Post, the Evening Standard, the Nottingham Post, and Spiked.

I have a first-class degree in Politics from the University of Nottingham and an MA in Newspaper Journalism from City University London. My interests include politics, music, tennis, travel, photography and design. In 2011, my political blog was named a Top 100 UK political blog at the Total Politics awards.
