UK PM Webcasts to the nation

It's all part of the Blair Net Project

The British Prime Minister has sidestepped traditional media and used the Net to broadcast to the nation. The party political Webcast by Tony Blair earlier today was part of a £55,000 refit of the Government Web site, number-10.gov.uk. What's more, the PM has vowed to talk to his flock every Friday using it as a platform to connect directly to his people. Today he talked about education. Government spinpersons denied that this New Media triumph could smudge the boundaries between Government policy and party politics. ® See also: The Blair Net Project
