Uncut – first month

Labour Uncut is now a month old. We’ve had some fantastic contributions, a great reaction and massively more traffic than we expected.

The whole venture was a spur of the moment thing. It’s more work than it probably looks for the small group of people involved. But we’re enjoying it and we think it’s worth doing.

What do you think? What should we do more or less of? What would you have us do differently?

We’re genuinely interested. We want to produce something people want to read.

Here’s a random selection of some of the better-read posts of our first month:

Goodhart on immigration

Painter on the non-existent centre ground

That Abbott quote in full

McTernan on Trident

Ray Collins forgets to pay lip service

Cheetham: who you calling a loser?

Wegg-Prosser on opposition

Westwood on the Big Society

Hain on Ed Miliband

Joyce: neither Blair-lite nor Clegg-lite, thanks

Nick Palmer on the army of the unaffiliated

Hodges blames the Labour right

Straight outta Corpus

The awesome ruthlessness of Ed Miliband

    I really like this site & visit it almost everyday. I like articles by MPs who are not big names talking about who they like for leader & why. I like the news of the day summary. I hope it stays as good as it is. 😎

    I’ve really enjoyed reading all of the articles on the site since it started, and I think it makes a valued contribution to both the Labour Party and the (absurd) blogosphere. In my opinion, it is the best political ‘blog’ I’ve come across. You constantly have interesting and engaging articles written by informed and eloquent contributors.

    I especially like the articles written by Labour MPs, about the leadership, current issues, etc. I would like to see more of these as I think that articles from the ‘inside’ are an excellent way to develop the community aspect of the Labour Party and affirm that this is a political movement we are all involved with, and all have an equal say in. I’d also like to see more articles based on broader political issues, or issues dealing with ideology and things like this, as I’m a student and enjoy that kind of naval-gazing.

    So, I’d say, more of the same! If you keep rolling out quality articles like you do at the moment, the site will only go from strength to strength.
