The National Information Forum, founded in 1980, was voluntarily wound up in 2011, but the popular (and free) e.mail News Briefing, produced monthly by Derek Kinrade and Chris Bazeley, has continued under the banner 'Not the National Information Forum'.

As such it is now a very personal digest and commentary, largely on social issues. Since its inception it has tended to grow in scope, in line with an unprecedented agenda for change. Derek admits that the briefings are selective, left-leaning, irreligious and mostly critical, but hopefully accurate and honest. He feels that some fairly outspoken criticism is needed right now. Each issue has a trenchant essay in a series entitled 'We Hate'!

The briefings, nevertheless, have gained many admirers and only occasional complaints. They review a wide range of sources, but especially The Guardian, and point up where to find fuller infomation. If this polemic approach might be congenial to your taste, even if you think differently, Derek would like to add you to his mailing list.
