Iain Dale's Diary: Government to Monitor Blogs

Iain Dale's Diary: Government to Monitor Blogs

Iain Dale is covering a plan by the UK Government to formally monitor blogs as part of their strategy of responding to issues covered in blogs. Many are concerned that it is a waste of money and the first step to control and regulation. Look out Big Chip Dale?

My question is how do I get one of those jobs?

Very good idea Ian.

Think I shall apply.

I could even blog from work.
What's best, I could keep leaking to the papers which blogs Gordon was afraid of and they'd believe me!

I detect a good marketing strategy for BP...

Excellent plan for blog power for Blogpower. I think this would be an ideal job for Sir James Biggelschwarz, although perhaps we could share the love and offer a balanced perspective over time. We could even offer international perspectives.
