It’s been an interesting few days for the UK political system and the web. On the positive side David �Dave� Cameron is blogging his trip to India.

The video on the blog reinforces the idea that he’s going for an approachable, ordinary bloke image:

Still, a few policies might be nice, too, Dave. how about it?

Meanwhile David Millibland’s latest venture onto the web – a wiki – has had to be taken down because it was defaced. It’s a shame really. It was an interesting idea, but launching it at a time when the current government is rapidly reaching the nadir of its popularity was probably naive.
