The question was raised yesterday in a comment on the blog as to whether I was willing to accept guest posts from those who have proved their ability as regular commentators.
What is it that gets proven? Skill at sycophancy?
I have worked hard to ensure that this blog is open to a wide range of opinion, and take a lot of flak for doing so.
Err, yes. ‘Allo Rajiv.
So, the question is, should that role of lead writer be shared? And who would want to offer a contribution? I would, I admit, retain full editorial rights, but there are many here who can write well and have valuable opinions.
And to the interesting question. Given the commentators there will guest posts increase or, Lord Above, reduce the quality of the posts?

This is the best political economy blog on the net, due entirely to your hard work and intellectual rigour. It offers a clear explanation of the issues and a solution to many of the problems we face.
If someone criticises your analyses in a positive manner, you are happy to debate, and that makes for interesting reading.
See what I mean?
