When on sabbatical, he became the chief spokesperson of NO2ID.[2] He was appointed as Head of Media for the Liberal Democrats in December 2004.

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.[5][6]
