A blog from the back room


The author is Hopi Sen, who worked for the Labour party for seven years and now doesn't. You get the benefit of their immense wisdom and knowledge (hem hem).

They write about politics as a loyal Labour supporter.

Blog Information

Hopi Sen writes a sparkling blog about the political issues of the day.

It's witty and informed and endearingly self-effacing. It's often hard to believe that someone who worked in so central a role in the cauldron of politics can retain such a grip on reality and their own importance - even if they are still a self-confessed, unashamed partisan.

Accessible, generally well designed and regularly updated. One to watch.
