CZECHMATE TO GLENIS

Euro Election, europe

 Great post by new European Parliamentary Labour Party leader Glenis Willmott about Vaclav Klaus’ speech to the European Parliament. Glenis has vast energy and in addition to all her new duties as Leader she has launched a blog. I am pleased to see her allowing comments. Too many senior politicians can opt out of this. As I am sure Glenis is finding running a blog can be quite a time investment. I am delighted though that as Leader she is embracing New Technology and better communications. I hope her example will lead to more of my colleagues of all persuasions joining us out in the blogosphere!

  1. Many thanks Mary. I’ve been over there to ask her what the point of things is politely. Let’s see if she publishes it!

    On that note, Glenn Greenwald has a nice piece in salon.com on how American politicians and journalists just never allow questions or censor debate.

    You should have a real-time question and answer session every month. That’d stop Charles Clarke ordering you to restrict the internet; give catholics, smokers, libertarians, pro-Hamas nutheads and Labour people a chance to question you on your views; and be a chance to justify the parliament.

    Good luck
