I am an experienced online journalist and political editor working for Trinity Mirror papers in the West Midlands and the North East, based in the Parliamentary Press Gallery at Westminster.

I understand how government, Parliament and political parties work. I am equally at home digging out stories from data, social media or interviews as I am covering major set-piece events or explaining how things work to readers.

I produce content which is shareable and promote my work on social media.

My experience with content management systems and knowledge of HTML allows me to include charts, embedded content from third parties and formatting in my work, to create content which encourages interaction and keeps readers on the page.

Have you bid for Olympic tickets? If so, you may be surprised to learn you are competing against Her Majesty's Government, which has requested 9,000 for itself

Of these, 3,000 will be set aside for for civil servants and other officials, who will have the chance to buy tickets from the reserved pool.

Another 6,000 will be available for Ministers and top officials to entertain "international and domestic political and business leaders, dignitaries and others with a close connection to the Games".

It stands to reason that we'll see David Cameron at the games schmoozing foreign leaders, but does the Government really need 6,000 tickets for hospitality? And who are these business leaders, exactly?
