What's your favourite political website?

  Production Ed 16:29 02 Dec 2009

I'll begin by congratulating mr simon, our latest Readers' Sites champion. The subject under discussion was online dating, and mr simon recommended Match.com (or rather, mr simon's friend recommended it). Regardless, mr simon wins our prize, an Intempo IDS01 portable speaker and iPod dock.

Our thanks go to mr simon and his friend, then, as well as to the other forum regulars who pitched into the discussion.

Controversially, perhaps, our next subject is politics. So: which sites do you turn to for political news and analysis? Do you favour websites with a political affiliation that matches your own, or do you seek coverage that's impartial? And do you prefer big-name sites with credentials, or nimbler sites that may be less reliable but occasionally scoop their larger rivals?

If you'd like to win a great prize (and see your name in the magazine, of course!), add your politics-related recommendation, and the reason you'd recommend the site, to this thread. Alternatively, you can email [email protected].

Good luck!

I can see no reason to go on to a political Website as I see enough on the Television.

BBC news is about as close as I get.

I agree with ulrich.

For political news I just use the BBC Politics section, which usually gives a brief, mostly unbiased coverage.

For discussion, I usually head to the Politics & Current Affairs section of the RichardDawkins.net forums (click here for website) which is full of lively discussion, though obviously with an atheistic viewpoint, as that is the main element that brings these people to the site. For me its the best place I've found.

'this one'.

But I won't.

My favourite is undoubtedly the BBC, and their new site - Democracy Live - looks so promising that I'm going to give it my vote.
