It’s all kicking off in the world of TalkPolitics.
Since I last wrote to you, we’ve got involved with two All-Party Parliamentary Groups – Bite the Ballot’s APPG for Democratic Participation, and MyLifeMySay’s APPG for a Better Brexit for Young People. We’re working with MyLifeMySay to deliver Café Europe sessions across the country, to ensure young people have a say in Brexit in their June report.
The big news – if you missed our press releases, I’m delighted to say TalkPolitics has taken over the popular site, Filibuster UK (https://medium.com/filibuster.) Filibuster was in Blogspot’s top 25 political sites of 2016, and we’re excited about what we’re already achieving with them. This week, our team is meeting with ShoutOutUK, in the final stages of our plan to license out ShoutOut’s AQA political literacy course – so we can facilitate it in the North of England, Scotland and the Midlands. If you know of any schools that could benefit from this course – give us a shout and we’ll be happy to deliver!
Also, massive shout out to Cameron Broome – formerly our Head of Education, who is taking over as Editor-in-Chief from our brilliant co-founder Carl Sacklen. Carl has been instrumental in the founding of TalkPolitics and in our popular support in the early days and I can’t thank him enough. Onwards!
As ever, I’d like to thank you all for the brilliant support on social media and on our blog. Please continue to spread the word, donate, and get involved with our important campaigns. Heroes.
All the best,
Matt Gillow (Founder & Managing Director)
PS: Look out for our manifesto and accompanying essays – coming soon!
