LibDems Web site dies a death

Politicians love affair with the Net continues

Somewhat ironically, our attempts to find out what, if anything, the LibDems have put in their manifesto to do with IT and the Internet have been thwarted by the fact that the site is inaccessible.

Not exactly comforting is it? It doesn't take a genius to realise that during an election campaign and on the morning of releasing your manifesto, you may receive a hit or two more than normal.

The site simply can't cope. We did manage to actually get some the site's graphics up at one point but then as soon as we went for the manifesto button, it was no go.

More evidence that politicians and the Internet simply don't mix. ®
