See what's going on under the surface of current eventsA commentary of opinions and views inspired by news and current affairs - mainly in St. Anne's and the fylde, but sometimes in the wider world.

Occasionally you will find information that others would prefer not to have publicised.

You might also come across controversy during your journey under the skin of current affairs.

Other hot topics can be found under latest. The archive is divided up into publication years (Jan-Dec) and is more or less what it says on the tin.

John Stuart Mill
