We’d like to thank all of our readers for reading the British Politics and Policy blog in 2011. This year we have posted nearly 700 articles and had hundreds of comments and we now have well over 7,000 followers on Twitter, and 450 Facebook ‘likes’. We’ve also published 150 book reviews covering a wide variety of topics in politics and policy.
Over the next week we’ll be posting some of our LSE and other experts’ thoughts on trends for 2012. Look out for:
- Chris Brown on the future direction of UK foreign policy;
- Mary Evans on why we have reason to be hopeful;
- Mark Pack on the likelihood of a general election before 2015;
- thoughts on maintaining the UK’s foreign aid commitments from Avery Hancock;
- Sara Hagemann on the future of the UK-EU relationship;
- Tim Leunig on planning and the economy;
- Sally Broughton Micova on where the Leveson press inquiry may take us; and
- Daphne Halikiopoulou on extremism and the far right in the coming year.
This year you’re also going to be seeing and hearing the commentary on British Politics and Policy blog in new and exciting ways, and you’ll also be able to download e-books on our major themes.
