The Guardian Election blog goes live, with a Slugger feed being syndicated on their sidebar. Tom Happold reports that Blair’s been to Buckingham Palace to let the dogs of election war off the lease. We’ll do our best here to keep you and the Guardian’s readers abreast of all developments in NI. I hope to make it over for the last week of the campaign to report from the ground in a variety of constituencies, provided we can garner enough support from our many readers – many’s a mickle makes a muckle!
