The Age of the Blog

Blue Bell Hill & Walderslade Conservatives are embracing internet "Blogging" to improve communication with residents!

Britain's top political Blogger Iain Dale, (Pictured above with local Conservatives), visited Chatham & Aylesford to help launch their new "interactive" on-line diary aimed at improving communication between local councillors and the communities they serve.

Allan and Peter will be using their Blog to keep residents informed about local issues and campaigns to improve services and facilities. A regular feature will be planning applications submitted to T & MBC with a hyperlink to the Borough Council Planning site for full details of applications.

There are also fast-links on the site to enable readers to contact their Councillors and other service providers such as T & MBC and KCC.

Iain Dale is the former owner of "Politicos" Bookstore in Westminster. He now writes "Iain Dale's Diary" an on-line political diary which attracts hundreds of thousands of readers every week.

Speaking at a meeting in Chatham, Iain said,
"Increasingly people are turning away from newspapers and the traditional media. The internet is a growing influence in the way people obtain their news and information. Local Conservatives deserve congratulations for the foresight and progressive outlook."

Chatham & Aylesford's Parliamentary Spokesman, Tracey Crouch, added,
"We are always looking for new ways to communicate with local communities. Younger voters in particular are far more likely to join the political debate if they can do it on-line. This is a really exciting development and indicates how the Conservatives are in touch with new developments and ideas."
