About

Posted on July 7, 2010

Mark Wallace is a writer and political campaigner. An ardent libertarian and eurosceptic, his political experience includes working as Campaign Director of the TaxPayers’ Alliance (November 2007 – July 2010) and Campaign Manager of The Freedom Association (September 2005 – November 2007), as well as advising numerous major brands on their communications.

CrashBangWallace is Mark’s personal blog. The strapline is “Politics with a punch”, meaning this site will be the home of strong political opinion writing and breaking stories from Freedom of Information requests and other sources.

Born and brought up on Tyneside, Mark cut his political teeth campaigning against Britain joining the Euro, and took part in the No campaign in the 2004 North East Regional Assembly Referendum. Following a degree in Archaeology at the University of Durham, where he was elected President of St Chad’s College, he worked on Medieval and Dark Ages excavations with the Bamburgh Research Project before taking up an offer to work in political campaigns with The Freedom Association.

In the course of the last eight years of professional campaigning, Mark has taken part in hundreds of television and radio interviews across all of the UK’s major broadcasting outlets. He also writes regularly for a wide range of online and print publications on a variety of topics and speaksĀ at dinners and political meetings. The campaigns he has organised and managed have ranged from a 1,500 mile tour around the UK with a giant digital clock, a national cinema and online promotional campaign for a new book and co-ordinated pavement and aeroplane advertising in the run-up to the European elections.
