As of this month I’ve joined the esteemed ranks of the New Statesman‘s regular online columnists. My pitch for the gig was, basically, “I can write about technical or obscure but important issues, but in a funny, engaging way, every week“. Think about this for a moment, and you might notice that I’ve made about three separate rods for my own back there.
Anyway, here are my first four attempts:
- On the coalition’s half-hearted efforts to raise the school leaving age
- If inflation is so bad for us, then why is so much policy designed to make us want more of it?
- TfL’s moves to go cashless on buses will hit the vulnerable hardest
- And, something of a viral hit: why JK Rowling should buy her own national newspaper. Really.
