It strikes me as a relative newcomer to the Welsh blogosphere that there is a distinct lack of blogs from Welsh Labour.
Other parties have got with the times and I've found that one of the best ways to keep up to date with politicians has been through their respective blogs: the Lib Dems have one of the best bloggers in Wales in the form of Peter Black who's excellent for regular and topical debate, Bethan Jenkins – Plaid's rising star – frequently blogs on her work and Conservative leader Nick Bourne posts on an infrequent but fairly regular basis.
There are also blogs from 'grass roots' party supporters for many of the other parties but considering Labour are the biggest party in the country and considering they have more AMs than anyone else, one would think a blogger might be among them...
Is it just easier to attack the government than defend it, do you think? Or are Labour just too busy governing?
Could it be that the Labour party are missing a trick? After all, while other parties pride themselves on getting people involved Labour seem content to hide away in Cardiff Bay...
I'd love to know your thoughts on this one!
PS If there is a good Labour-supporting blog that hasn't crossed my path please let me know!
