This isn't a diatribe against Iain Dale. He runs a great blog, the only problem is that it is biased heavily against the Liberal Democrats and obviously pro Tory.
So the question has to be, irrespective of the merits of the argument, who would use a Tory blog, an opponent of the Lib Dems, to air their problems and dirty washing ?
Read the article HERE, which to Iain's credit he prints largely without comment.
I just wonder would someone who is worried about the Lib Dems really go to Iain Dale with the story ? The problem is, for people like me, that those outside of the London bubble and are happy with the way recent local selections have taken place, happy with our councillors, and are happy with our MP's, the point scoring of "who is on what committee ?" seem trivial. Perhaps they are, perhaps they aren't. But I have to question the motives of anyone who gives ammunition to the opposition and e-mail's tittle tattle and conspiracies to Tory bloggers.
This is obviously a "big issue" for group of people, but I would ask, why isn't it being discussed by Lib Dems ? In my case, is it because I am not in the bubble ? Is it because I do not necessarily trust the view of people who silently and secret brief people but who won't put their names to anything and believe that they "know best".
Your comments are always welcome, but can people stick to the issue "Why would people use the Tories to air their views ?" and "why are a small group doing secret briefings ?"
