Bit of news - we've got a few changes going on at Politics.co.uk towers.
I'm leaving my position as editor and turning into…. editor at large.
In effect, we're splitting my role, so that I keep the writing and let go of the other editorial responsibilities, which have been occupying a lot of my time.
From my perspective, this is exactly what I wanted and I'm incredibly grateful to the team who helped make it happen.
I'll still be doing the Friday newsletter - sign up here if you fancy a bit of that politics.us3.list-manage.com/subscribe/post… - and a piece for the site every week, plus some video features. From a reader's perspective, I'll be more active on it than I have been for a long time.
But at the same time I'll finally have the bandwidth to do the freelancing I've wanted. So also: if you're a commissioning editor - commission me please. I write words good and in order.
For anyone who typically pitches me, or wishes to do so in future, please direct all emails to Politics.co.uk’s publisher @nathan_coyne. The best address for submissions is editorial@politics.co.uk. It's checked regularly.
In the next few weeks, Politics.co.uk is going to have a major redesign. The new site is going to be gorgeous - really stark, upmarket and full of space. The content will bring you the same mixture of in-depth pieces, provocative comment and thoughtful analysis.
I'm taking a holiday in December - wherever the hell I can legally travel - and then both me and the site will be hitting the ground running in the new year.
For me personally, it's the end of an era and the start of a new one. But it's still focused on Politics.co.uk. I've been with this site for over a decade and plan to be with it for a long time to come.

It's happening tonight. The Doritos Lasagna will be challenged by a new experiment: the tamale pie.
This was some of the best shit I ever cooked. Looked like baby sick, obviously, but then Latin food so often does. Tasted like you were being touched by God.

I think what I find so irritating about the fleets (urgh) is that this site, for all its faults, is predominantly about what's going on in someone's head, not what they look like.
Now, it turns out that what's going on in many people's heads is absolutely horrific and I wish I'd never encountered it, but that's another matter.
I use Instagram as a kind of Facebook-without-words - a locked account just following people I know in real life, with a few exceptions. But I'm aware that much of Instagram features people doing their very best to look beautiful and charmed.

What the fuck is this Instagram stories shit in my Twitter
What the fuck have they done. This is a war crime.
This can fuck the fuck off and fuck off again while it's doing it.

We obvs can't go near cinemas at the moment, but fwiw, we felt very safe in cinemas before lockdown: you're well away from anyone, people are wearing masks and the audience is not talking.
I struggled with first WW film and really dislike DC's films in general. But fuck me if going to see a good Wonder Woman film isn't exactly what I need right now.

Biden's victory showed what is possible if liberals and the left work together against nationalism - my latest for the @TheNewEuropean theneweuropean.co.uk/brexit-news/it…
We can of course go back to usual pattern of mutual loathing and frustration. Or people can take the fight to the real enemy.
That involves at least one concession on each side. The Labour left should accept the EHRC antisemitism report in its entirely. It has to commit to anti-racism. Some never will - and they should fuck off. The majority of the left does and will.

Wouldn't want you to have developed a sense of hope or spiritual reassurance. We'll have none of that here.
Johnson says Windrush was a "scandal" and the best is being done to "collectively to make amends". This is false, of course. If it were true, they would not be creating the conditions for precisely the same situation to arise with European citizens.
