TCF: unflinchingly into the future
We just thought we’d give a quick summary of where we’re at stats-wise, thoughts-wise, and what blogposts are in the pipeline, so that readers can either keep an eye out for them or avoid them like the plague.
While topical stuff will inevitably crop up and require a word or 2,000, planned posts for the short term include:
- A review of James Purnell spouting crap in the Guardian;
- Assessing New Labour achievements (1): Children’s Centres;
- The German and Portuguese elections;
- Assessing New Labour achievements (2): the National Minimum Wage;
- Hannah Arendt and totalitarianism, in which Dave and Paul may come to blows;
- Miller vs Roberts: ringside report of bloggers actually nearly coming to blows over the platform/no platform debate;
- Engels’ Anti-Duhring, and how an understanding of same may help you fix your bike;
- Patronising atheists;
- Almost certainly something taking the piss out of Paul Richards, Polly Toynbee, or Tom Harris, or all of them;
- The future for the Labour Left (part 4 of 6), in which Chantal Mouffe gets battered again in the interests of socialism, and a cunning plan for the revival of the labour movement at local level is revealed.
We hope you’ll stick around. We’ve always been pleased with the level and quality of the comments threads, and as authors we always try to respond. We believe this commitment to such engagement is, in part, what marks us out from other blogs.
That and the fuckin’ swearing.
Evidence of the growing profile of TCF lies in our recent blogstats, which show a fourfold increase in page views since June.
We’re also on the look out for like-minded collaborators, so give us a shout if you think you’d like to post at TCF.
Clearly we’re not going to allow rightwing crap to be posted, but if you think your style and substance would fit well with what we’re trying to be and do, then feel free to give us a shout. Your stuff might get plenty of readers, or we might tell you to fuck right off.
But life’s a gamble, eh?
