Welcome to Politics Matters – The Online Political Magazine.The idea for Politics Matters grew out of a smaller politics-based blog previously edited by the current editor of Politics Matters, Richard Cressey. Politics Matters has three primary aims:

These three aims provide the broad ethos behind Politics Matters and all work undertaken in the name of Politics Matters will relate directly to one of these three aims.
