Richard springs into the bloggersphere

Richard Spring(s) geddit?

Very poor joke I know but it is more interesting a headline than “Suffolk MP start a blog”. Although thinking about it, the fact that one of our more “senior” MPs in one of our safest seats is embracing this interaction is very significant.

This move shows that opening up a dialogue with constituents is becoming part of the political mainstream and over the next few years I predict that blogging, forums, online discussions etc. will be as common as leaflets and door knocking.

Well done Richard.

  1. Its always nice to be reminded of home. Regardless of how safe a seat is, my personal feeling is that it’s vital everyone involved in a process where the voter is required to decide has the opportunity to interact with the person who represents them. It’s whether that “interaction” remains true which is the crucial point however, and my guess is that it’s not interaction with the public in the truest sense.
