Internet gunpowder

THEY are up and tweeting.. and now Camden’s Conservatives are preparing to launch a blog all of their own. Group leader Andrew Mennear told me as much last week. Can’t wait. All of the local councillors and activists will apparently share it. I say: Get stuck in Chris Knight and Don Williams.

…but where has this new interest in the information superwebhighway come from? Political Scrapbook may have already answered this. The site revealed a few weeks ago how blogging maestro Guido Fawkes – Paul Staines – had given a special talk at a wine and cheese soiree for the Hampstead and Kilburn branch in September. Will Mennear and Co copy the biting style of Fawkes’s prolific postings at and do something different than the average councillor blog? If so, there could be some fireworks.
