Blink and you’ll miss it

Party animals, awards and winter sun

By Ben Davies

24 Hour party people…

Those of you who have been watching the televisual gourmet dinner that is Party Animals may have spotted that a New Statesman bash was supposedly featured. Now I can’t deny that we’re terribly glamorous over here in Victoria – I refer you to my picture – but clearly we can’t begin to compete with the raciness of the average resident of the Westminster Village.

However it’s true that New Statesman does throw the odd party and one of those takes place in July when we unveil the winners of our New Media Awards. Thankfully it’s not like the above mentioned television series but it does reward people/organisations that have made a contribution to our society.

Cause for comment

Moving on we’ve been putting some of your comments into the letters pages of the New Statesman and now we’re beginning to go the other way publishing letters we didn’t have have room for on the website so please keep them coming. Our weekly online readership passed the 137,000 mark and part of the pleasure of the new website has been the level of debate that you’ve been holding.

THANK YOU

And now I’m off to Cornwall for a bit of winter sun. I’ll be leaving you in the capable hands of Simon Hooper who will be captaining the online ship for the next few days while I gorge myself on cider, dressed crab and pasties.
