Culture at the Commentator

Posted on January 24, 2013

This is just a swift post to let you all know about a new branch of my writing that I intend to expand this year . While CrashBangWallace will continue to be the outlet for my political writing, the team over at the Commentator have kindly agreed to feature my work on the culture front. So keep an eye out there for pieces on the arts, film and wider cultural commentary.

Here are a couple of recent pieces to whet your appetite:

Kate and the Curse of the Royal Portraits

Wanted: Adventurous female to give birth to Neanderthal

I hope this new content will be as well received as the political blogging I do here – your feedback, comments and support are very welcome, as ever.

Thank you

Is the world safer without bin Laden?

I’ve written a piece for the new comment site The Commentator on whether as Ed Miliband said the world is a safer place now that Osama bin Laden is dead. You can read it here.

PS totally off-topic but if you haven’t voted in the AV referendum yet, don’t forget to do so – and vote NO!
