BLOGS AND DOGS September 23, 2005

Posted by wmmbb in Category to be ascribed.

The comrades over at Western Sydney Caucus raise an eyebrow at Malcolm including his dogs on his blog. I say good on him. It is a start. Sometimes dogs do not bark, and sometimes dogs are of interest to “dog folk”.

It is a self evident truth, given party discipline, comrades, that no major party politician could not have a genuine blog, because a blog requires personal opinion and thought, and the endless repetition of the party line is as boring as you know what.

Senator Andrew Bartlett is doing a good job leading the way for other politicians to follow. I look forward, comrades, to the day when all our elected representatives, including the Lord Mayor, have blogs, and we have a decidedly more deliberative parliament able to hold the executive accountable.

These are dreams comrades. Dreams. In the meantime, I will settle for dog blogs.
