The Motherload® is about more than parenting: politics and global events affect us all and we are passionate about giving our writers a platform to comment on the stories which make the headlines. Here you’ll find our responses to events which have moved us and angered us, from terror attacks, to major political events and more topical news stories.

If you’d like to write for The Motherload®, you can email alison@the-motherload.co.uk and don’t forget, if you like what you read, share it!
