New Statesman has been redesigned and has several new columnists and sections.
The Intelligence, a new front section, will present an alternative view of the week. The middle section will contain more reflective narrative reports and essays. The Issues will cover social affairs, the environment, health and science, while arts, books and culture will be covered in The Critics.
New columnists include comedian Mark Watson, David Blanchflower, a former member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, Phillip Blond, the director of the thinktank ResPublica, and novelist Will Self.
Newstatesman.com has also been redesigned and the site has launched a new blog, Free Speech.
