Reaction.life is a British news website that features reporting and analysis on politics, economics, culture and ideas.[1][2][3]

Reaction is based in London and edited by former Scotsman, Telegraph and Wall Street Journal executive Iain Martin, who is also a columnist for The Times and The Conservative. In July 2016 former conservative MP Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 7th Marquess of Salisbury joined the board as Chairman. Mark Fox is Deputy Chairman.[4]

Notable stories

On 30 June 2016, Boris Johnson withdrew from the Conservative Party leadership election, Iain Martin published an account of the run up to the unexpected announcement that day describing it as a "cuckoo in the nest" plot by Michael Gove.[5]

During the leadership election, Reaction published an article by a former colleague of Andrea Leadsom, Robert Stephens, alleging that she had misstated the extent of her roles in the financial sector.[6][7] This was the first of a series of revelations that lead to Leadsom withdrawing from the contest to become leader of the Conservative Party and UK Prime Minister.[8][9][10]
