A new SNP blog from Stuart Dickson. I can’t think of many (any) SNP bloggers who I’ve come across before, so it should be an interesting read.
He’s got a pretty exhaustive list of Scottish political blogs in his blogroll aswell. I’ll probably try to work my way through those one day, as I often feel the need to read more Scottish political blogs. I’m out of the loop, you know? The only Scottish news programme I like is Newsnight Scotland.
That list is so exhaustive, though, that he’s managed to list all three of my ‘proxy’ blogs – two of which have never been officially launched – each with a tag of “defunct?”. Even I don’t know if they’re defunct!
Incidentally, I’m thinking of doing a ‘Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath votes’ blog, because I think it’ll be really interesting what with Gordon Brown standing here and all. (You see, I was kind of inspired by Tim Ireland’s post about “get yer finger out; call yourselves proxy bloggers?!”. But I can’t exactly start up the Lewis Moonie one because he’s not standing, and I can’t start the Gordon Brown one because that would be assuming that he would win the election.) The whole Gordon Brown issue looks like it might have a fair part to play in the upcoming election, so there’d be plenty of material I bet. Don’t know if I can be arsed though.
In his blogroll, Stuart Dickson also calls me a centrist. I can’t complain, because that’s how I describe myself. But I’m just waiting for the moment when somebody says, “that’s not a centrist stance!” It does somewhat leave you open to criticism…
