Rarely does one use the words "an exciting new venture" – they don't come easy from a jaundiced old cynic such as this writer. But to have Norman Tebitt front a new venture which aims to be a right-wing UK version of Huffington Post does have a certain attraction, and it could be quite fun.

Please, please can I put a forum on that site?
Excellent quality bloggers, could this become an open source think tank??

I've already told them ... they must have comments. I'll suggest a forum. However, we have still to crack the problem of linking the posts to the forum on this blog, leaving it to be done manually. I'm not sure they will go for that!

Who are the geek-meisters? Could you get them to contact me? I got half-way through an auto forum loader then paying work came in. I'll dig it up and see what it needs. Skype on?

An RSS feed is essential.
But looks great, I'll follow avidly.

I've told tem that as well ... apparently, the launch was all a bit rushed. The original plan was to launch after the election, but it was brought forward. A lot of glitches, therefore, to sort out!

Sandy ... I'll talk to them.

A fine article, as usual.

However, one grievous error needs to be corrected.

"Climate Audit" is a Canadian blog. We are justifiably proud of our national treasure.

ARGGHHHHHH .... I knew that ... I did know that. Why did I write US? And I'm acutely aware of and sympathetic to Canadian sensibilities. I'll try to get it corrected.

A welcome addition to the blogosphere, congratulations and good luck to you all. Quality articles already and a fine minimalist look, though the narrowing text column when expanding the size of text (for my weak eyes) means one has to scroll a lot.

Great but late...The Conservative Party, now a Nu-Lab clone, is probably beyond redemption; even by Tebbitus Terribilis....traditional voting patterns will prevail & we shall have more of the same...& worse.
I wish the new blog well...but only a SuperGAU will wake this country up. & the sooner the better.

It needs a comment section, or associated forum or it really doesn't qualify as a blog. Odd, as Norm really seems to get this with his with his Telegraph blogging. Is this purely a technical issue? Site looks like a custom PHP jobbie, are there any well funded relatives involved? PDT_Armataz_01_27
