Happy New Year to all readers and writers of Political Promise. Thank you for your support, comments and contributions. In two years, we blazed the trail to get our voices heard, set the news agenda and make some good friends in the process. After much deliberation, and on the 2 year anniversary of the site’s setting up, I have decided to shut up shop. Unlike most sites, which vanish mysteriously, I will keep the site running so the articles (of varying degrees of quality) can remain active and published. I am going to concentrate on writing on other platforms (if they’ll have me) and university. I want to thank Matt and Will who gave me the inspiration to do it, Sam and Lewis for making me realise it was time to stop, Jamie for designing our magazine and general persistance of me, Declan and Ani the only official-est members of PP staff and all the writers. But thank you, most of all, for reading.
