While Allegra Stratton is off on maternity leave, I shall be tending her other baby - the political editorship of Newsnight.

I will be leaving thoughts and asking questions here. They won't all be finished conversations or stiff set pieces - more a flavour of what I'm hearing and thinking as I go along - snippets of interviews and curiosities I come across.

Too short for a blog, too long for a tweet (but arguably better typed) you'll have to find me a name for them first…
