Portside aims to provide varied material of interest to people on the left that will help them to interpret the world, and to change it.
We promise material that is ‘of interest to people on the left.’ That’s pretty subjective, so we exercise our best judgment.
We strive for variety in subject matter and opinion. We look for things that are topical. We also look for things that are analytical, probing and challenging. We look for things that are clear, and even better, entertaining.
Debate is good, if it’s respectful.
