I launched this blog in July 2016 shortly after the UK’s referendum on membership of the EU. It was an extremely significant event and had (and probably still has) a huge effect on both UK and European politics as well as on the global economy. It seemed like an interesting time to start a blog.

This blog will mainly deal with explaining and analysing the latest political news, mainly from the UK. I intend to post a couple of times a week. The main point of ‘An Idiot’s Guide to Politics’ is to explain the political news to people who otherwise wouldn’t understand politics or find it interesting. I hope this site is of use and of interest to anyone who stumbles across it.

For more of my rationale behind the blog you can read my first post here, and you can contact me here.

Thanks for reading and enjoy!
