Ben Brogan, political editor of the Daily Mail, hasn’t quite got the hang of the latest craze at Westminster for setting up your own blog.
The best political bloggers — such as wannabe Tory MP Iain Dale and the mischievous Guido Fawkes — have updated their sites daily, even hourly, throughout the summer.
But Brogan is now finally back blogging after a month-long hiatus after last posting on 26 July. Curiously, he chose his last entry before his long break to write about MPs’ lengthy 76-day holiday in a piece entitled Gone Fishin’.
Perhaps Brogan should take a leaf out of Sky News political editor Adam Boulton’s book. He takes his blog so seriously that he was even updating it from his paradise island honeymoon with Tony Blair’s exgatekeeper Anji Hunter.
