I’m a British Journalist and blogger based in Barcelona. I was one of the first to uncover some of the strange circumstances Julian Assange’s arrest in a post called “How to smear a hero” before the international media latched onto the story. I subsequently contributed to Al Jazeera’s media watchdog show “The Listening Post” regarding Wikileaks. For these sins I was once accused of being an “Assange apologist” by respected Guardian investigative journalist Heather Brooke.

I am also a guest TV pundit on El Punt Avui The Week in Football Show.
