I’ll shortly be posting the first of a new feature on Harry’s Place – the HPQ&A but before I do just a quick word of explanation for the sake of transparency.

The idea is simply to send someone ten questions via email which they are asked to respond to at a length of their choice.

The questions are posed by myself and the answers are unedited and there are no follow-up or supplementary questions. It is simply Question and Answer.

In the future I hope to be sending the Q&A to politicians, campaigners, journalists and others whose work has some connection to the themes addressed on this blog. Any ideas (or offers!) of subjects will be welcome to me via email.
