I want to highlight three Conservative MPs who have just started blogs - Ed Vaizey, Richard Spring and James Duddridge. They're all very different, but all three seem to 'get' what blogging is about. Ed's blog is, as you might expect, probably the most entertaining of the three, as he deploys his characteristic wit to good effect. Richard's is more cerebral, but no worse for it. He is a great ranter when he gets going, so let's hope he puts fingertip to keyboard when he's having nasty thoughts about the East of England Regional Assembly. James needs to update his blog more often and make it more prominent within his website. At the moment it's a little hidden. Stephen Crabb has also started blogging, but he purposely only updates it once a week. No Stephen, if you're going to do it, do it properly.
So that brings to six, the number of Tory MPs who blog. Boris Johnson and David Davies are the other two. Have I missed any? I predict that by the end of the year there will be another dozen.
