As always love the technical part of the posts, however as you mention the political part can alienate. Not because I don’t share the same views but because it makes perfectly reasonable post a very one sided one.
For example not linking to DailyMail, Why even mention the site in your post?, It’s only mentioned to make an anti right leaning statement and not a statement about them picking up on the failing of the IT management within the UK gov sector.
Lastly there is no mention that the majority of the sites were not commissioned by this government but most likely under the last gov.
Actually it’s strange that I find myself writing the above as I’m also not a supporter of our current gov but would rather tech posts steered clear of political or religious views and stick to the main story. (you’ve managed one of the two at least)
