Readers Select Subject For Investigation

The New Statesman (NS) is inviting readers to have their say on the issue they most want to see investigated by the magazine.

Dubbed “a unique experiment in British journalism”, the initiative offers the audience five subjects for a new investigative journalism piece.

The five topics are the political lobbying scene, Conservative Party funding, the “asylum crisis”, British childhood and the influence wielded by Prince Charles.

Visitors to the NS online are asked to vote for the investigation they wish to see pursued “as a matter of priority”.

The weekly magazine is also giving readers the opportunity to suggest their own subjects for investigation via the comments section.

Currently heading the readers’ poll is the way the British government treats asylum seekers.
