Blogging an election for Slugger

Following on from our highly successful coverage of the Assembly elections in November 2003, we are opening our appeal to send our roving blog reporter (aka yours truly) to Northern Ireland to cover the last few weeks of the Westminster and Council election campaigns. But it depends on you! Last time our readers raised a massive £800, enough to cover the last six days of the campaign. The money covers costs of flights, internal travel and subsistence whilst on the ground. As the donations rise we’ll see the cartoon Mick get happier and happier. Who knows what he’ll do if we break that magic £1000 mark!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
