Corpsing on WebCameron
Prepare yourselves. Jonathan Sheppard of Tory Radio and I did a piece for Webcameron last night and here's the result (Tim Montgomerie was supposed to join us but was no doubt getting hammered in some sleazy Bournemouth bar....JOKE). It's a 10 minute chat about blogs, podcasts and, er mobile phones. Why mobile phones? Well, you'll have to watch the video. I think in the trade it's called 'corpsing'... They seem to have edited out the expletives though...
Last night I went to the Candidates reception and the Chairman's bash. Ran into Huw Edwards who had been queuing for 4 hours for a pass. He was not a happy bunny. It's a really good idea to piss off the BBC's main news presenter, isn't it? There was also a story doing the rounds that Andrew Lansley had been forced to spend the night sleeping in his car as his hotel was in the secure zone - unfortunately he is denying it.
Francis Maude has been visiting the queuing hordes to sympathise and ply them with chocolate. It really is not his fault but of course he is taking the flak.
In 45 minutes Francis is coming to officially launch the bloggers stand. The media seem very interested in it so I think we're going to be deluged.
Tune in to the Daily Politics at noon News 24 at 7.30 and Anita Anand at 11.30pm on 5Live as they will all be covering it.
