I don’t read this blog, because I find it an embarrassment. I don’t write for it as much as I’d like either for the same reason.
The header only carries pictures of dead people, most of whom weren’t Libertarians.
Most of the writing on this blog would be great, if trying to talk down at teenagers badly was a good idea.
And this prose: OMG!
This fairly pleasant-looking young woman seems to have brought several hundred hits to the bolg, merely by tamely repeating “I’m saving the planet” mantras on Sky news. Astounding really, since we are just a think-tank, and we don’t even agree with her with the people who have told her what to say.
And, she’s even from Bromley. Just down the road really. Marilyn Monroe, you are nowhere, stop hanging out with the corrupt, grasping, self-centred Kennedys, and get a life.
As this is a family blog, read by women and children too, ladies don’t take off their bras in front of people they don’t know:-
Apart from the insane reference to Marilyn Monroe, the bit that gets me is the claim that “this is a family blog”. What kind of family? You would have had to beat me near death to read anything as bad as this blog when I was child. How many women read this blog?
Using Tags like this: Tagged: bra, bras, entertainment, girls, Keeley Hazell may get some people who search for these words on Google to accidentally land on the LA blog. But this is no more than Spam. I’d be annoyed, not happy, to search for “bra” and “girls” to find myself pointed to some of the rubbish on this blog.
I could excuse this, if there was anything of immediate relevance to Libertarian Alliance supporters. (What has the Battle of Agincourt got to do with Libertarianism? Discuss in no more than 300 words.)
What people who are unable to attend the LA Conference this weekend might like is live-blogging [here's a demonstration from the U.S. vice presidential debate recently] from the National Liberal Club. Instead we get Milton Friedman videos that, if I’m not mistaken, are nearly 20 years old.
Last year, I asked if we could have wi-fi at the next LA Conference so bloggers could report it live. Sadly, this was not done. I can’t be the only person unable to attend the Saturday events who would have liked to see something about the conference up by now. Does anyone wonder if the leftist Daily Kos would fail to ensure bloggers could cover their events? No, I didn’t think so.
If the National Liberal Club can’t accommodate wi-fi, the LA Conference should go elsewhere.
Was there any serious attempt at press coverage? Not even a press release in the run-up to the event.
Any broadcast media or live podcasts [Here's a recent one by Patrick Crozier on the financial crisis]? No.
Looking at the old conservative men peering down from the header on either side of Chris Tame, I see very little to inspire for the future.
