Letter From The New Editor

Dear Readers,

I am the new editor who is taking over from Alex MacDonald as the overall manager of the site. I don’t expect to make any drastic changes to the way The Backbencher works but rather to reawaken the output of it. I am currently in the process of establishing a more regular and specialised team to carry on writing the opinion pieces you love.

Hopefully contributors will have more specific areas that they tackle, much like other journalistic outlets so you know what to expect. We are also working on creating a weekly podcast once the ball is rolling. If you have any queries, comments or suggestions please don’t hesitate to email me at joeysimnett@outlook.com

All the best,
