You won't care.The Political Weblog Project is a collaborative effort designed to encourage MPs, Councillors and other elected officials to communicate more effectively online via the intelligent use of weblogs. Elected officials who wish to take part in this scheme must follow these simple rules that exist primarily for your own benefit:

Rule #1 - You must own (or be ready to purchase) your own domain name.
Rule #2 - You must use the technology to engage in two-way commmunication
Rule #3 - You must fund/source the weblog with your own money or resources.

Those who pledge to follow these rules will be provided with all the necessary assets and expertise at an extremely competitive rate.

What is a weblog?  |  Why two-way communication?  |  Why do I need my own domain?

More politicians need to be using weblogs properly. Maybe you can help.

Harsh. Relentless. Focused. But not at all personal.

This weblog closed on December 15, 2004 with the following statement:

David Blunkett has resigned as Home Secretary. This is a good day for Britain. I have always made clear that my argument is with Big Blunkett the politician - I have no quarrel with David Blunkett as a human being. Therefore this blog is now closed. It will remain in archive form to remind people how easily our basic freedoms can be lost.
