The Straight Talk Express

Left Foot Forward has teamed together with Mehdi Hasan and Sadie Smith to bring you short, sharp answers to the big questions every day from now until May 6th.

When will the Clegg bubble burst? Where’s Grayling been hiding? How does a Big Society rescue 200,000 stranded Brits?

Left Foot Forward has teamed together with the New Statesman‘s Mehdi Hasan and Sadie Smith from her eponymous Tavern to bring you short, sharp answers to the big questions every day from now until May 6th.* And yes we did nick the name from John McCain’s battle bus.

Watch it:

* Except we may not do it every day and it may not always be Sadie and Mehdi

    Smith & Jones must be s***ing themselves.

    Hi Will. I think there must be something wrong with my version. There didn’t seem to be any short sharp answers just an aimless ramble like two people talking on a bus.

    “We are a non-partisan blog.” … “When will the Clegg bubble burst?”

    Wow. For ‘non-partisan’ people interested in the eight things you claim to be interested on the right hand side of the page there seems to be a lot of this blog given over to lib dem bashing. How depressing.

    Hi Duncan,

    I don’t see why we can’t offer a range of different pieces including some that are critical of Lib Dem policy (eg on their tax threshold change or their finance policy), others that are supportive (eg on their green policy or on Trident), and more – like this – which are just a bit cynical about the current polls.

    All the best,

    Will
