Ralph is Politics Editor at NationalWorld.com based in Westminster, to explain why what goes on in Parliament matters to our readers. He was previously the website's Head of News
Within politics, he primarily writes about Brexit, housing and immigration, and aims to hold politicians to account and ensure tax payers are getting value for money in Westminster. He has previously written extensively about home affairs, particularly on policing, courts and the underfunded British justice system.
Ralph has written for most major national newspapers, including the Daily Mirror, Sun, Daily Mail, Independent, Guardian and Telegraph, as chief reporter at Triangle News agency. He was the first reporter at the Google-funded PA Media data project Radar AI, which used automation to write thousands of stories for local and regional newspapers across the UK.
Prior to joining NationalWorld, Ralph was the launch editor of the award-winning city website LondonWorld. During the pandemic, Ralph’s reporting on influencers jet-setting to Dubai during lockdown led to the government bringing in stricter travelling rules. He also extensively reported on the campaign for public parole hearings for bereaved families, and attended the first ever public parole hearing for killer Russell Causley.
Ralph also broke the story about the Yorkshire Ripper boasting about dodging Covid in prison, before his death from coronavirus, and that the London Bridge terror attack ringleader had taught children at a school.
He has also reported on three general elections, the EU referendum and several London mayoral votes.
Ralph lives in south London, and when he isn’t out on his bike he’ll be watching Newcastle United, win, lose or draw. Get in contact via email with any tips or feedback.
