Proxy blogging

After Garry of A Big Stick and a Small Carrot started his Anne Begg proxy blog, Stuart Dickson asked:

Doctorvee, any plans for a new Gordon Brown MP [proxy blog]?

Well, I don’t know about that really. I wasn’t thinking about it anyway. I kind of waver on the issue of proxy blogs enough. Gordon Brown would be such a big task. I don’t think I would be up to it really.

Besides, isn’t the point of proxy blogging to try and get MPs to blog themselves? It’s all very well getting an opposition MP or a backbencher blogging. But would I rather the Chancellor of the Exchequer was blogging, or trying to do his job?

Perhaps I could run a proxy blog that focuses on just constituency issues. Whatever, I remain to be convinced. Convince away if you want to though!

  1. This is possibly a very good argument for AV+/AMS at Parliament – if your constituency MP is a bigwig like Brown or Blair, then one of the regional MPs that was elected additionally can take on the constituency work for them instead…
