Hi all. I am currently writing my Masters dissertation at the University of York. It deals with a distinct British form of political ‘spin’.
“Spin” is a term most people are familiar with (via The Thick of It, and other cultural representations). However, are we agreed on what it actually comprises?
Would you be so kind as to jot down your opinion on what political spin is (British, American, Australian, anywhere), and also when you first encountered the term? You can do this in the comments below.
This would be really useful for me to get a feeling of how problematic (or not) the area is. Feel free to share this too, and many, many thanks for your help.
