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.

Glenda Jackson has an ePolitix website, but no bugger seems to know where it is (that includes most search engines). As the author of this proxy blog noted in an early post:

Googling for Glenda Jackson yields 115,00 results - the majority of the first two pages of hits being related to her acting career. Only two links (both to the Guardian) in the first 20 results relate to her career in politics. How easy is it to find her website? Well, having searched for 'hampstead mp' and 'highgate mp' and not found her website in the first 20 results...NOT VERY! (although, this does assume she has one). More searching to do!

The Voidstar feed for this proxy blog earned the 2nd result in Google for 'glenda jackson mp' in late 2004, but this has since slipped as the content hasn't been updated often enough. However, the proxy blog was still 1st in Yahoo for 'glenda jackson' as recently as August 2005.

Though neglected of late, this proxy blog continues to provide some information on Glenda's latest movements via an RSS feed from
