Rotherham Politics was started to open up political scrutiny, using the many tools* that are now available to us on the web. Politics is moving on-line and we will be there to report on developments.
Recent changes have opened up to citizens an enormous amount of new and detailed information, that may be used to scrutinise those elected to conduct the ‘peoples business’, from National Government down to parish councils!
The sole purpose of this web site, is to scrutinise local elected representatives transacting the ‘peoples business’.
This is largely a web only operation. Rotherham Politics gathers together the work of many individuals, in a way that make us more than the sum of all of our parts.
This site is distinctly non-aligned politically. We believe that all legal political opinion is valid and has a right to be heard!
All opinions expressed whether as a post or comment, should be subject to critical review and debate. Once published, opinions become ‘public property’ and fully open to debate.
Rotherham Politics, allows comments and posts from Anonymous contributors. The identities of the majority, are know to me. Those whose identities are not known to me are closely moderated. They are also encouraged to register with Rothpol to improve the chances of future publication. No swearing, no trolls, are the only rules. Rothpol prefers to publish reasoned argument and debate, rather the mere derogatory comment, with no justification for their opinion.
The approach is to be objective, if necessary, critical but fair. We will at times be blunt and controversial to stimulate discussion.
Rotherham Politics is not responsible for the views of contributors, nor for the content that this site links to. Simple abuse is not acceptable and will be removed.
