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!
