onthefence is an independent satirical news platform for the 21st century. Through satire and critical articles, we give a commentary that is both left and right. Right where necessary, left where necessary – depending on what side is underrepresented in society and politics. We will never adapt our commentary to become a solely left or right wing outlet. Hence our motto; “satirical news not for the meek, from the fence we speak”. We welcome comments on all of our articles, however outrageous they may be. Where possible we will engage in debate with those who think differently. If you want to write for us, please contact: contributions@onthefence.news and join us onthefence.
