Welcome to The Week online

Editor's Letter: A new website that combines the best of The Week and The First Post

WELCOME to TheWeek.co.uk, a new current affairs website that brings together the brevity and clarity of The Week magazine and the dynamic daily journalism of The First Post.

The Week's ability to cut through the media fog and get at the news that matters has made it compulsive reading, helping it become one of the most successful magazines in British publishing history.

The new website aims to do the same thing.

While The Week magazine offers readers an overview of the past seven days, The Week online promises a daily snapshot of what's important - what you need to know.

Look out for the daily Talking Point, where we scour the morning newspaper columnists, radio commentators and political bloggers for the sharpest opinions on the big issue of the day.

Regular News Analysis articles will tackle the breaking news – what's just happened and what does it mean?

Briefings help you get a handle on those issues that can prove maddeningly difficult to comprehend and keep coming back into the headlines.

Readers of The First Post, now incorporated into TheWeek.co.uk, will still find their favourites here – News in Pictures, Premier League Transfer Talk, inside scoops from The Mole, and weekly insights from our columnists, Richard Ehrman, Crispin Black, Robert Fox and Alexander Cockburn.

TheWeek.co.uk is much more than a news digest – it's an original take on the news as it happens.

I hope you enjoy the site. If you have any comments, please visit The Week UK Facebook page.
