Electoral Commission Fringe

Should a Council owned Blackberry Account be used for Party Politics?

I know what you mean brave Anonymous.

BB ought to be claiming it on a Westminster MP's expenses account instead - a racket which has been going on for decades.

At least the Scottish electorate can keep up with what is going on at the SNP conference via BB's limited coverage, as the BBC seems to be carrying out a 'no platform' policy as regards live coverage of this important occassion on the Scottish political calender.

I mean, it's not as if the SNP conference is the Glastonbury music festival or the 'T in the Park' music festival, for which, huge budgets and hundreds of BBC personnel suddenly become available.

This is only Scottish democracy in action after all - and doesn't provide much of an opportunity for a Westminster or BBC junket at taxpayer and TV Licence Payer's expense.

I thought it would be informative for people to see what I'm up to, so I don't see the issue.

It's a shame the conference coverage by the BBC is so limited - there's always a lot of interesting stuff going on, particularly in the Fringe meetings.

The only reason you see the blackberry message is because I'm emailing posts to blogger, and I don't quite get how to remove the GCC disclaimer. If anyone knows how, please let me know! I've gone in to edit this now, so posts are a wee bit tidier looking.
