About

Man about the House…

WELCOME to davidwooding.co.uk

David has been covering the news since he left school, working for seven national papers – and treading the corridors of power as a political editor.

He developed his career reporting on major stories around Britain and the world and then became a News Editor before moving to cover events in the House of Commons.

Liverpool-born David is a well known figure in Westminster and is regularly called upon to give instant analysis on TV and radio.

David has been Associate Political Editor at The Sun since February 2012, when he was appointed to oversee coverage in the new Sunday editions.  He has also worked for other top papers including the Daily Express, Daily Mail, News of the World and The People.

During the “phone hacking” scandal, David became the voice of innocent News of the World staff who lost their jobs,  making a wave of TV and radio appearances which earned him the Communicator of the Month award and the accolade of Journalism “Hero” of 2011. He was honoured by his home city in 2013 when he was unanimously elected as President of Liverpool Press Club. Despite living 200 miles away, David regularly goes home to keep touch with his roots.

His down-to-earth insight can often be heard on broadcast media, such as  BBC Radio 5 Live, Newsnight, Sky News, This Morning and BBC Breakfast. Here he gives his own views on events on the political stage.
