As you know, Labour's Tom Watson and I have had our, ahem, differences in the past. But I do think the initiative he has announced on his blog is a good one and one which other candidates might like to adopt on other subjects.
Last week Watson was one of the few Labour MPs to vote against the Digital Economy Bill. He's now seeking endorsement from his West Bromwich constituents for a ten point "digital pledge", and asking people on his blog what they think of it before he puts it into a leaflet, which will then be delivered throughout his constituency.
He's clearly setting himself up as the MP for the Internet. Every MP should have one or two areas of specialisation and it could well be a good idea for them to share them with their constituents before they face them at the ballot box.
