We know that if you miss a couple of days of The Standard you can have 15 posts to read. Even though we try to keep posts pithy, it can be too much to catch up on.
So, we’re happy to introduce the Standard Week. On Fridays, we’ll do a Standard Week post linking to the five or so top posts of the week (by number of comments or subjective awesome-ness) so you can catch up on any you’ve missed. We’ll also email the Standard Week to anyone who wants to receive it.
Just flick us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to go on the Standardista list. On becoming a Standardista, you will receive your Standardista cloth cap, ‘how-to’ guide for living a PC life, class consciousness, and Notional Party yo-yo that swings from the right to the centre and back again every three years.*
