Top politics from the award-winning New Statesman

As British politics enters a new era, the NS will be essential reading. Every week our new, must-read Inside track section will tell you everything you need to know, with the sharpest analysis from our leading writers.

Our political editor, Martin Bright, leads the coverage with insights on the new order: Brown, his allies and his adversaries. Peter Wilby nails the latest thinking, while Kevin Maguire passes on the whispers. We'll also be keeping a keen eye on the Other Side, with a weekly column on David Cameron's Conservatives.

Under the banner New Times, we'll cover the big ideas that go far beyond the UK and political parties.

All this, plus unrivalled comment on the environment and global affairs by John Pilger, Mark Lynas, Lindsey Hilsum, Rageh Omaar and many more; humour from Julian Clary and Shazia Mirza; and Britain's best arts and books pages.

New Statesman - all you need to read.
