Today is the fourth birthday of ConservativeHome, and I just wanted to write a blogpost congratulating Tim and his team for the splendid work they have done.
What they have achieved is to transform the perception of internet politics, and give grassroots Conservatives a real voice. Their relationship with the Conservative Party has not always been a smooth one, but nor should it have been. I've had my differences with them too, but I don't let that deflect from the fact that it would be almost unimagineable if it wasn't there each morning. For most Conservatives who look at political sites, a visit to ConHome is as vital to their mornings as toast and marmelade. Tim writes HERE about the site's achievements in its first four years.
Happy Birthday Conservative Home.
Note: Just for the record, this blog first saw the light of day in March 2002, although in its present incarnation, since late November 2005.
UPDATE: Plato, in the comments, says it is also, by pure coincidence, the birthday of Guy (as opposed to Guido) Fawkes.
