Politics.co.uk is about independence of thought. Big ideas, argued in a way which does them justice; important stories, told in a way which entertains. Our readers make up their own mind - our job is to bring them stories they never heard of and views they hadn’t considered yet. We’re proud to partner with the Battle of Ideas festival, where fearlessness and independence of mind come with the territory.

"Although 'battle' suggests destruction, these were some of the most constructive debates I've taken part in. This was civilised conflict in the best sense of both words."
Julian Baggini, author, Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind, and The Ego Trick
