Two new blogs
First up my Stoke Newington neighbour and Labour comrade Matt Cain is now blogging, and has a go at Compass here.
Secondly Derek Draper now has a personal blog so that he can rebut some of the incoming fire he is taking from Guido.
I have to say I find it very distasteful that Guido has sought to undermine Derek's professional reputation in a job that has nothing to do with his political life, quite apart from the stream of probably libellous comments about Derek's family and personal life that Guido allows to be posted by his commenters. There's quite enough legitimately for anti-Labour bloggers to attack/disagree with about Derek's politics and past without the very personalised way in which Guido has sought to undermine Derek's work life in recent days.
It doesn't really encourage people to contribute to debate on the blogosphere if you feel that by doing so you set yourself up for character assassination that might damage your ability to earn a living.
