A new chapter for politics.co.uk

The new-look politics.co.uk has finally gone live and some of us have social lives to get back to.

We've been working flat out behind the scenes for a couple of months, trying to bring you more of what you want and less of what you don't.

Evolution, not revolution is the key. We've brought our comment and analysis content front and centre by featuring select pieces on the homepage. Everyday you'll find a new package waiting for you here, on anything from Labour leadership speculation to video games age-ratings.

Don't worry: politics.co.uk is and always will be a news site. These packages will always be connected to a major news development happening in British politics. Over on the news homepage we'll bring you all the most important news stories from Westminster and the UK. If you're a political fanatic, there's no better place to find in-depth, comprehensive news stories on what's happening behind the scenes.

Speakers Corner, I'm afraid, has gone the way of the dodo, but Comment and Analysis will still bring you some of the most perceptive and controversial coverage on the internet. From MP comment pieces, to our own analysis of unfolding events, to our 'speech in full' feature, this is the place where we trigger debate.

Over on Opinion Formers you'll be able to secure your access to the political world, unmediated by editorial. Here the movers and shakers from the worlds of think tanks, public policy, political parties and the private sector post their press releases, so you get access to the information you need, uncut and unedited.

Finally, there's our reference section, arguably the most useful political directory on the web. From MPs' profiles to blog reviews to issue briefs, this is a one-stop shop for your research. No frills, just reliable information.

The latest social media and sharing utilities have been embedded across the site along with a more engaging design that still maintains the basic structure and attitude of politics.co.uk.

Whatever else changes, politics.co.uk's mission statement remains the same: Impartial, in-depth, thought-provoking coverage of the political world.

Just politics. Nothing else.
