The Blog of
Nadine Dorries
No Time for a Postcard
Posted Friday, 2 March 2007 at 09:42

I am out and about in the constituency today so blogging is not easy. My broadband request has gone through bt@whitehall - who says our phones aren't tapped!

Two comments which came in from yesterday's blog are interesting. One pointing to a website re the $20 trick and another from Dave who comments on the paucity of IT awareness within the Labour party. Having mused on Dave's comment,  I think that maybe Jack's obsession with my blog is born from a  lack of awareness as to how powerful blogging can be. Maybe he finds the concept that my blog has had a quarter of a million hits in five weeks a bit difficult to take in.

Maybe that is indicitive of a political ideology which is ultimately  about control - and the fact that people freely communicating with  each other  means that politicians may not have ownership of the message in quite the way they used to. If I were a Labour politician that would scare me too -  but I would try to refrain from the knee jerk reaction displayed by the Leader of the House - me thinks he doth ptotest too much! I will blog from any internet cafe on Saturday, either that or unpack the box which contains the lap top charger!

Oh what a Goddess you are Nadine...not only am I able to communicate directly with you but you actually comment on my comment. Life can't get any better... well maybe.... with a Conservative Government and soon may it come.

Its much easier to blog when you believe in something - which could explain why Labour MPs have so much trouble with the idea ! ;-) PS BT probably read your blog !

I am thrilled that the real Nadine is coming to campaign in Liverpool with us from 10am today Saturday March 3rd (it is 5am at present). This shows total commitment to the Party cause and support for her original grassroots. You worked so hard in Hazel Grove in the 2001 General Election and have made a huge impact in the House of Commons already. Your blog site has brought you national acclaim and we in the North West are thrilled for you. Local girl makes good. Keep going. We are with you.

My wife has asked me to clarify my previous Goddess statement. My dictionary contains three definitions: 1) Supernatual being 2) Figure or image used as an object of worship 3) Somebody admired and imitated I am happy to point out that definition 3 applies: I admire Nadine because of the hard work I know she does on behalf of her constituents, Jack Straw admires her because he can imitate her by quoting her words.
