Merry Christmas from the New Statesman web team

Thank you for reading - we're having a rest, and we hope you are too.

By Helen Lewis

After a jam-packed year – the New Statesman‘s centenary – the NS web team is taking a break for the next two days. Service will be resumed on 27 December.

On behalf of the team – Caroline, George, Ian, Sophie, Sean, Phil and all our bloggers – thank you for reading the website this year, and making it such a success. Over the sleepy interlude between 27 December and New Year, we’ll be treating you to some of our best pieces from 2013. 

In the meantime: happy Christmas!
