The Political Medway is an independent, non-partisan website covering politics within Medway.
Formed in 2015 by Steve Keevil and Ed Jennings under the even more unwieldy name The Centre and What’s Left, we have since covered local politics news, elections, and the day to day workings of a local unitary authority.
By 2019, the site had expanded to include daily updates involving local politics, live coverage of council meetings, full analysis of local election campaigns, a host of guest writers, and more. Even more bafflingly, people were actually reading it too.
A small plea: The Political Medway is an independent, volunteer run website attempting to provide coverage of politics in Medway. It takes a fair bit of work to keep us going, but also a bit money too. We fund this project ourselves because we believe it helps shine a light on our local politics, but if you’d like to help us pay the bills, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi page. Every little bit really does help keep this ridiculous thing going.
