This work aims to continue on from a previous set of blogs looking into politics and political affairs. It concentrates on the current major political affairs and looks at all of the main political parties and players. It addresses key policy areas and debates and analyses the decisions made by both governing and opposition parties. This series of blogs does not seek to promote a specific political agenda but instead seeks to promote a fair and balanced account of political debate. Throughout these blogs the work seeks to be both critical and practical, hoping to contribute to the political landscape in the UK.
