I’ve been following the Lord (Clive) Soley instigated group blog for a few days now and despite the awful design, name, and technical set-up it is working well at the moment. In my opinion it is because the blogging Lords are writing in a very natural language.
Of the nine participating peers only two were previously MPs and perhaps this helps contrast them against my particular perception of the House of Lords. And, since one of their stated aims is to change the image of the Upper House, they are succeeding.
Congratulations, Lords, keep going, but please do ask someone to do some work on the design and techie side – you’d have thought a title for the RSS feed would be right up your street. Boom boom.
