The Mire: Tangents, threads and opinions from The Wire HQ

Moving Parts

Jennifer Lucy Allan

The Mire ran from early 2008 until 2013, when The Wire's website was relaunched. The blog became defunct as the site expanded into new areas, and much of The Mire's remit was covered by other parts of the site, as it mutated into new sections: galleries, opinion columns, features and more.

In the name of completism and for the good of the archive, all blog content is archived here, right back to the first missive in 2008.
