Censorship in Plumstead part 2

Don't worry I am not entering into a blogging war with The Last Boy Scout as that would be really boring, all is over, but in reading the explanation he posted on his blog, he included a link to David Gold's blog, he being the Prospective parliamentary candidate for the Conservatives in Eltham. I have to say that readers will have probably noticed that I am not a natural Conservative and I have to say that I have never yet voted for them, but never say never in my book and sometimes a change in government is necessary, nevertheless I found it to be quite readable, it made a good attempt to be balanced, I even agreed with a few things! He also had some generous and kind words to say about the recently deceased Labour MP for Ealing.

I have to say that to my mind this was very much how I think a Political Blog should be, obviously it will make the case for a particular point of view, but in the process seeks to explain and persuade. A cynic might say 'oh well, it's only because the guy wants to get elected', but I am not as cynical as you might believe. I have to say I liked his Blog so why don't you have a look and decide for yourself. David Gold's blog

I think you are rather easily impressed. His blog read like an elctioneering pamphlet to me.

OK Nigel you're right, as usual, it was probably that it was so much better than LBS, that it clouded my judgement.

Easily impressed or not, thank you for taking the time to look! Of course I want to get elected, but in the process I hope to carry people with me rather than just be the 'get Labour out' candidate - and I hope along the way I can learn from the people who send me their comments and thoughts.
So keep them coming.

David
