with 15 comments


Charlotte Gore, according to Total Politics, writes and edits the 23rd most popular political blog in the UK largely thanks to appealing to broad spectrum of Liberal Democrats, Libertarians, Conservatives… and even some real people too. It typically gets between 15,000 and 25,000 visitors a month.

Iconoclastic, irreverent and tenacious, Charlotte writes from a classically liberal perspective, tending to mix philosophy with analysis, predictions and explanations of current events in an accessible and spin-free way.

She also contributes articles on Civil Liberties for the Guardian’s Comment Is Free site and has appeared on Sky News and Al Jazeera.

Charlotte makes her living doing freelance writing, graphic design and web development and is available for commissions.

    It’s not a question of dislike. It’s a matter of trust ;)

    Just read your reasons behind not standing as a PPC – felt I found a kindred spirit and having read some of your blog, now know I have.

    Great to read such open, honest views so well written :)

    What do you actually do for a living? You surely can’t earn much doing this!

    In fact, I can’t work out how any of these “bloggers” have enough time to trot out all this drivel, how is it that anyone can earn a living and have the time to read or write any of this crap?! It’s a mystery to me… everyone I know’s got bags under their eyes like Bedouin tents, and barely even enough time to get pissed on an evening.
    Do you people down in Londonland live in a parallel universe or something?!

    Hmm… don’t live in London. Am freelance writer and web designer. This blog doesn’t make me money directly. As for time… it’s a question of making time.

    That’s it!
