Tom Watson quits – but don't check his blog

If blogs really mattered in UK politics – yet – one would have hoped to see something on Tom Watson‘s blog about his news-leading resignation from the junior ministerial ranks. Tom is acclaimed as the first UK politician to publish his own blog, back in March 2003, and won a New Statesman award in 2004, with the citation noting that he had ‘set an example for other MPs interested in connecting directly with the electorate’.
If there was ever a time he needed a direct-to-public mass communication channel to put forward his opinion in detail, surely this would be it? But at the time of writing… nothing since 28 August. Shame.
