Bloggers to the Rescue
Iain Duncan Smith has an article in the Guardian on blogging and how he believes it will help rescue the conservative cause in Britain, just as it has done in the U.S.
“An online community of bloggers performs the same function as yesteryear's town meetings. Through the tradition of town hall meetings, officials were held to account by local people. Blogger communities are going to be much more powerful. They will draw together not only local people but patients who have waited and waited for NHS care. They will organise parents of disabled children who oppose Labour's closure of special-needs schools and evangelical Christians who see their beliefs caricatured by ignorant commentators.
All this should put the fear of God into the metropolitan elites. For years there have been widening gaps between the governing class and the governed and between the publicly funded broadcasters and the broadcasted to.”I can already hear the wailing coming from our friends over at the BBC.
