Turn up the music, uncork the champagne, and wear your best party grin – our To The Point series is one year old tomorrow. We intended for this series to be a useful set of revision notes on political (and, sometimes, not so political) topics. Hopefully, within the bounds of its one-graph-and-five-bullet-points format, it’s achieved that and will continue to do so.
The – ahem – graph at the top of this post shows how the number of To The Point posts has grown over the past year. There are two a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with exceptions when I’m on holiday or otherwise away from my spreadsheets. The grand total of posts, not including this one, is now 93. It began with the deficit and last week it alighted on industrial action. There’s been a lot else in between.
Speaking of, here’s a selection of ten posts from across the year:
- The problem of youth turnout
- Osborne isn’t alone in borrowing £billions more than he expected to
- Our main debt problem is a household debt problem
- We need to look to Texas for prison reforms
- The horror of our debt interest spending, explained
- Let’s not get carried away. The Conservatives only won over a quarter of all potential voters
- Sorry, Mel Gibson, Braveheart didn’t win it for the Nats
- London’s record: 27 private sector jobs for every public sector job cut
- Can Fallon replace regulars with reservists?
- The dilution of the trade unions
Or, of course, you can just stroll through the entire archive here.
And then there is the second year of To The Point posts. If you have any topics that you’d like to see covered, please mention them in the comments section.
