First for Politics

Politics First is a non-partisan, bi-monthly magazine for the British Government and the British business community, providing first-rate coverage and analysis of the pressing political issues in Britain and the wider world. With contributors and columnists spanning the higher echelons of government, business, governance, media, law and academia, Politics First is an indispensable read for anyone in Whitehall or Westminster.

Instead of simply observing politics from the sidelines and following the agenda already set, Politics First helps to lead and shape discussions within Whitehall and Westminster. The magazine’s editorial is strengthened by its coverage of subjects and views rarely found in the British media.

Politics First’s audience comprises MPs, Peers, the top 200 Civil Servants and their policy leads, government departments, members of the devolved governments and legislative chambers, directors of business including the FTSE 250, leaders of business and trade organisations, leading third sector organisations and civil society groups, embassies/high commissions, members of the European Parliament and British national media outlets.
