This site is closing on 3 July 2018
I (the editor) have found that I don’t have time to maintain this site or to write the sort of in-depth feature articles I would like to write. In addition due to a change of career I can no longer support the costs involved in running this site.
FROM 3 JULY 2018 THIS SITE WILL CEASE TO FUNCTION.
If you would like to save any of the content from this site please feel feel to download it before then.
From 3 July I will be maintaining a slimmed down version of this site here: https://newobs.wordpress.com. Please bear with me while I take time to get this new site up and running.
Also – here are a few sites which are regularly maintained and which you might be interested in:
In Defence of Youth Work – site is chiefly about the state of youth work (under attack from proponents of the pure market economy like never before) – but often publishes thoughtful and timely articles about neoliberalism in general.
