Red Hot Chilli News is web log produced by a number of writers all of whom believe in progressive politics. We believe in honest reporting and are aware of the power that media holds. The site will giive news and analysis of many social and political issues in the UK and abroad. We will look at everything from a left wing view point but are independent of any political parties. There are also a number of reviews from the arts and entertainments that hopefully readers will also find interesting.
The website was started in April 2014 by Lucette Davies but recently has taken on a number of new regular contributors and guest contributors.

Since writing one particular post I have found myself eager to support the charity The Thunder Foundation, that featured in that post. I have said that if anybody will either like this site’s facebook page or follow the site’s RSS feed I will give £1 to Thunder Foundation. The Thunder Foundation has become a registered charity since I wrote that initial post and they now have a givey page if anyone wishes to donate themselves. The facebook page of Thunder Foundation is also well worth a look and gives some smashing photos of the children in the Thunder Mutartara Learning Centre.
To help us develop this site further please do use the comment boxes below each post and let us know what you are thinking.
