In a world where many are alienated with politics and political affairs, this series of blogs aims to provide an insight into the political world. It concentrates on the major political affairs of the last year looking at all three major political parties. It addresses key policy areas and analyses the decisions and views of the parties. This series of blogs does not seek to promote a specific political agenda but instead seeks to provide a fair and balanced account of political debate. Throughout these blogs the work seeks to be critical but also practical, hoping to contribute to the political landscape in the UK.
