New Politics

About us

New Politics contains news, commentary and analysis of national politics. We’ve been up and about sporadically since 2004, and relaunched the site in 2012, with added bite.

While we could be branded as being ‘left-of-centre’ (whatever that means these days), we encourage debate and discussion across a wide range of perspectives. We generally make interpretations through the on-going political prism and provide thought-provoking assessments and analysis of the day-to-day goings on at the heart of our political system; the players, the performers, the wannabes, and all else in between.

We don’t provide breaking news, but our writings are considered and…entertaining!
