Sadie Smith has worked as a bag-carrier to various Members of Parliament for the best part of a decade.
During this time she has made several forays into the world of political blogging, which have typically involved flame-wars and laboured Hollyoaks metaphors.
Any views expressed here are hers, and do not necessarily reflect those of whichever MP she’s currently working for.
Charlotte graduated from the Lancaster University, having majored in music technology, and studied politics as a minor. Since then she has always been interested in ways of using technology to improve and engage people in politics. She writes the blog Digital Politico.
After a few months interning in parliament for Lib Dem MP Don Foster, Charlotte started C.A.H Multimedia, a company that works with clients to develop their social and web presence. She has worked with a wide range of commercial, political, and third sector clients.
Away from work and politics, Charlotte is an obsessive music fan, collecting vinyl and CDs from across the musical spectrum, as well as a devoted follower of Tottenham Hotspur FC.
Emma Burnell has been a Labour activist since she was tall enough to put a leaflet through a letterbox.
She represents the Socialist Societies on Labour’s National Policy Forum, having worked for the Fabian Society and previously run SERA – Labour’s environment campaign.
Emma is proud to say she walked down the aisle on her wedding day to the theme from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which she believes tells you everything about her you need to know.
