What with the joyous news of both the imminent shutdown of Smokefree South West and the government’s new rules on ‘government lobbying government’, it’s been a marvellous few days, hasn’t it?On the latter, here’s a bit of history for you that many might not be aware of. Back in 2008 I started writing here and the blogosphere was completely different. Iain Dale was not a publisher and presenter on LBC but instead one of the pioneers of political blogging (he was arguably instrumental in raising blogging to a level where many now rival or even eclipse the MSM). His enthusiasm for the platform was infectious and his Daley Dozen – literally a dozen blog articles every day – would promote left of centre blogs as much as he would his preferred Tory ones.
