Tomorrow morning I'm attending what I am told is an ultimate "Power Breakfast". It's being organised by Julia Hobsbawm's Editorial Intelligence and is a discussion on "Political Commentary After Blair". Rather timely, I guess. I was invited to attend but rather took exception to the speaker lineup - Peter Kellner, Chris Huhne MP, Helena Kennedy and Steve Richards. Nothing wrong with them individually, but they do all share a similar 'world view'. So, idiot that I am, I emailed Julia making that point... only to be asked to speak myself. That'll teach me. Sky News are co-sponsoring the event with Adam Boulton in the chair.
Interestingly Editorial Intelligence has just expanded its monitoring of the commentariat to include blogs. Another sign of the growing influence of the blogosphere?
The event is being podcast on Politics on Demand. More at www.editorialintelligence.com.
