Is Labour in danger of becoming the analogue party in the digital age?
Mike Ion wants to know if Labour is in danger of becoming the analogue party in the digital age. This rather cryptic question is actually a whinge about bloggers slagging of the Labour Stazi and wanting to know how best to deal with the lack of "connectedness" with the electorate and how best to "reconnect" with the people.
As well as his own blog, Mike (who was the Labour PPC for Shrewsbury last year) has posted the article on Telford Live where the residents of what has always been a moderately safe Labour seat (including myself of course) are giving him a right lashing.
It's not looking good for Mike but luckily for him, fellow Labour member Councillor Bob Piper (assuming he didn't lose his seat the other week) has jumped to his aid by telling us how Labour are going to win the next election easily and that my predictions of huge defeats at the hands of the Tories are delusions. We'll see. If anyone can remember why I had a run-in with Bob Piper, please let me knwo because I really can't remember.
My thanks to Tommy for reminding me what it was all about. All the comments (all negative) have been deleted at some point.
