Littlewood studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Balliol College, Oxford and was Campaigns Director of Liberty from June 2001 to April 2004. When on sabbatical, he became the chief spokesperson of NO2ID. He was appointed as Head of Media for the Liberal Democrats in December 2004. He resigned from this position in May 2007, after saying that the introduction of proportional representation should not be a deal-breaker when negotiating for the Liberal Democrats' involvement in a coalition.
Littlewood was Director of Liberal Vision from 2008 to 2009, a classical liberal group within the Liberal Democrats, before taking up his current position at the Institute of Economic Affairs in December 2009.
Littlewood has spoken extensively against regulation of the tobacco industry on behalf of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), who currently refuse to acknowledge whether they still receive funding from interested groups.
