Demos Downhearted

Propeller-Head Wonk Watch: Guido went along last night to Demos’ launch of Serving a Cause, Serving a Community by Douglas Alexander. Labour really are fumbling around trying to figure out how to do politics online and to re-engage with their activists. (Hint : try honesty and drop the control freakery.)

Douglas was speaking NewLabourSpeak most of the time so Guido read the pamphlet, which amusingly talks about Popbitch in awestruck terms. Why is it so popular? (Clue : it is funny and gossipy.) They touched on blogs briefly.

Noticed that all the furniture at Demos is Ikea. The leftie crowd was very demoralised. Guido almost felt sorry for them. Almost.
