Ben was appointed Chief Political Correspondent for Radio 4 in 2012 before moving to Washing-ton. He works extensively covering a variety of primarily political stories from around the world which affect British politics. Amongst many, he has covered the general election, budgets, Presidential vis-its, Prime Ministerial trips and the expenses scandal.
