Adam is creating monthly essays on UK politics.

My name is Adam, I'm a PhD Politics student at the University of Oxford, and a couple years ago I started getting really into the politics of the United Kingdom. While I love the experience of getting better informed, I also began to get annoyed at how little emphasis our news media places on explaining how this country actually works. I would look longingly at US shows such as Last Week Tonight, Adam Ruins Everything and Explained, and their system-overview formats, and wonder what that would look like if transplanted over here. This patreon is an attempt to stop daydreaming and start answering this question.

Every month I aim to have a short essay, sometimes motivated by current events, sometimes not, that looks at some aspect of the UK political system in depth. Due to time constraints, and my being just one person, I will not be quite so thorough as the US shows mentioned above, but by combining information from government data, media and academia, I hope to offer the kind of informative summaries I would like to see more of in UK political coverage. 

Some readers may wonder why I choose to do this via Patreon and not, say, Medium or Wordpress. Well, while I intend my essays to be freely available, it would be nice if I could earn a few pounds here and there from the work I put in to write them. Putting them on Patreon makes such payments simpler for you, my audience. Also, having read essays and blogs on Patreon, I must say I really like the site's aesthetics. So. This is very much a 'pay if you like' project, and I do not intend to charge much at all for my work. If you do choose to pay though, know that I am very grateful.

Anyway. Thank you for reading to the end of this spiel, and for any support you choose to give me.

Best wishes,
Adam
