When I write about politics I usually have something to say. I feel as though much of my most articulate and persuasive writing is listed here because, as I say, most of the time I have a strong point to make, often passionately.

You can also find most of these pieces over at Demo Critic, along with other far more intelligent musings from others. But if you want some of the best of my mediocre crop, take a look below. The most recent articles are at the top:
