UK politics in context

Don't believe the hype

About the author

Patrick Cox

Politics and the news fascinates me. I want to know what it means and what is really going on in the background. I'm a secondary school history teacher; knowledge of the past gives me a long-term perspective on the here and now.

Putting events into context is difficult if you don't know how we got here in the first place.  My environmentalism is another lens through which to view the news, and another way of understanding it.

dontdontdont is an attempt to make sense of our sometimes confusing times and also to connect with others trying to figure out what's going on, and why.
