The 50-foot update, part 2: the politics stuff


The second of two mega catch-up posts, covering everything I’ve been up to over the last 11 months. This one covers the political stuff. You can see the previous post, covering matters cultural, here.

  • What exactly is going wrong with Michael Gove’s pet free schools policy: it’s all a question of money (New Statesman, May 9th 2011)

The rest of the political stuff, from either side of the pond:

  • The good news for Obama: a statistical lifeline, of sorts (New Statesman, October 15th 2010)
