Stephen Daisley

A free newsletter of opinion and analysis on Scottish and UK politics and current affairs, along with some takes on political goings on beyond Blighty. There are also humorous sketches, mostly from the Scottish Parliament, as well as links to other writing that makes me go ‘Yay!’ or ‘hmmm’.

Regular topics include nationalism, identity politics, the eclipse of liberalism, Israel and antisemitism.

I am an opinion journalist based in Scotland, United Kingdom. I write political columns, essays and parliamentary sketches for the Scottish Daily Mail and am a regular contributor to the Spectator. My writing has appeared in The Times, The Catholic Herald, Tablet, the Jewish Chronicle and Commentary.
