It has been a strange and challenging year, but we finally made it to the Christmas break. 

We hope you have enjoyed reading and watching us over the last twelve months. 

This year we were able to expand our Young Journalist Programme. It provides training for the next generation of journalists. It is all made possible thanks to the support of our members and the generous backing of our supporters.

Our live events returned, albeit briefly. More to come next year.

If you need a last-minute festive gift, purchase an annual membership of Reaction for friends and family. Our welcome gift offer has proved popular so we’re extending it for a few weeks. We’ll send a free hardback copy of the new George III biography by leading historian Andrew Roberts.

After a year of hard work, the Reaction Team is now taking a short break. There will be a reduced service on the site over Christmas and our daily email will return on Tuesday 4 January. 

Merry Christmas and here’s to 2022.
