OurKingdom Best of 2012: have your say

Help us pick out the writing and the moments worth remembering from the last year.

It's coming to that time when the last year is digested and spat out into pithy features and "Best of" lists, that leave me with a junk food feeling: satisfied but ultimately empty. So that was that then, was it? 2012. 

But it doesn't have to be like that. OurKingdom's "Best of 2012" will only work if it returns and reflects on the moments that mattered, and the writing that hit it spot on.

I need your help to pick these out. Any pieces that stood out? Let me know. Just name them in the comments below, or email me at [email protected] 

Here's some of mine, to get the ball rolling (They're just my own, not OurKingdom's! ) 

The abolition of the NHS. That's what is happening: Allyson Pollock and David Price. 

'Central banks should admit their mistakes': an interview with the Bank of England's Andy Haldane: William Davies, Andy Haldane.

A Tory feminist takes on an anarcha feminist: Zoe Stavri and Clara X. 

The UKBA's long, punitive campaign against children (helped by G4S and Serco): Clare Sambrook.

Murdoch and the Big Lie, Anthony Barnett. 

Is the army invading British Civil Society?, Vron Ware. 

How the BBC betrayed the NHS, Olly Huitson. 

Alternative finance radicals: infusing rebellion with entrepreneurial creativity: Brett Scott. 


Trade deals, Brexit and disaster capitalism

If you're tired of Brexit, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Is the UK joining Trumpland? Does this explain Boris Johnson's kamikaze EU negotiating strategy? And could beating this deal begin a challenge to the iniquities of the global economy?
