I was the staff reporter of Tribune magazine from June 2007 to December 2010, writing news stories about politics and the labour movement.
This blog is drawn from discussions with friends and contacts in politics and the union movement, and is meant to be a politically impartial ‘long view’ analysis of topical issues – with what little inside information I can muster. All views are my own and not Tribune’s. I am not a member or supporter of any political party. Tribune is not responsible for the contents of this blog.
In a previous life I was a forward planner and before then launched The Cheese Grater magazine at University College London, voted small budget publication of the year at the Guardian Student Media Awards.
