Welcome to The Staggers

The launch of our new blog

By Staff Blogger

It’s an exciting day here at the New Statesman with the launch of our new rolling blog The Staggers. The blog will include posts from across the team with a dynamic mixture of news, views and insight.

From 8am every day we’ll round up the best of the day’s comment from the morning papers and from 4pm we’ll select the highlights from the blogosphere.

In the run-up to the general election, we’ll also provide full coverage of the latest opinion polls and live coverage of Prime Minister’s Questions.

Our existing bloggers George Eaton and Sophie Elmhirst will continue to blog here and they’ll be joined by Samira Shackle and the NS deputy editor, Jon Bernstein.

THANK YOU

Sholto Byrnes will post on religion and atheism and Jason Stamper will write a weekly blog on technology and politics. Also look out for guest bloggers from across the centre left.

Elsewhere on the site, Mehdi Hasan and James Macintyre will continue to blog in their normal spaces and our rolling culture blog Cultural Capital will remain as before.

Finally, a note on the name. “Staggers” began as an affectionate (and mildly pejorative) name for the NS but like other terms that originated as insults (democrat, impressionist, intellectual) we plan to reclaim it as a badge of honour.

As ever, we need your involvement to make the blog a success, so do join the debate and let us know your thoughts.
