I'd like to thank Derek Draper for the contribution that he's made to Labour. That increased Tory lead demonstrates how effective his blogging skills have been. Top marks Derek. Really. You can stop helping now.
On the up side, theres an interesting statement by a group of progressive bloggers on the Liberal Conspiracy site, proposing what is almost a charter for leftish blogging. I don't claim that I'll always manage to adhere to the ideals, but they are a starting point. If only Derek had been given a copy of this.
