Coming for breakfast on Thursday?

Just a quick reminder; There are still tickets left for the Slugger / Stratagem big breakfast next Thursday at the Europa.

We’re there to go over the nominations for the Slugger Awards including the Thinker & explainer / Investigative journalistChallenging your own community threads that have been running over the last few days (the original nomination thread is here). There will be more of these over the coming days. (Update: A ‘building trust and credibility in politics‘ award thread has just been added).

We know that UTV will the there to cover the event and we’re hoping for wider press coverage. We spend a lot of the year trying to work out what people in public life are doing wrong, but main aim of these awards is to provide a bit of positive feedback.

See you there! And keep those nominations coming….

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
