Cameron *will* answer Slugger readers’ questions…

Well, Kathleen is planning to go tomorrow morning to the Cameron Direct event. Your disembodied questions will not be in vain, since although the format of the even will not permit three questions from one person, David Cameron will adress your questions directly over the weekend and we’ll have his direct responses on YouTube by Monday or Tuesday next week. So panic over!

There’ll be lots of others there too. O’Neill will certainly be there. Checkov, I’m not sure… Burke’s Corner being the Ur Ulster Tory of them all should make it, unless he’s too busy elsewhere. And ignited is going to be there too, he hopes with an open thread… All good blogs, and all with a keen understanding of what they are up…

As I said yesterday, I’ll probably be Twittering the live feed… Can I suggest all twitters use a more generic #CamDir and we’ll try to find a way to amalgamate them in one page. And if you are tweeting the Ulster Unionist Conference, we’ll pick you up with the tag #UUPCon! I want this to be a trial for how we cover all the parties, not just the Tories and the UUP. The more varied the voices the better!

  • I’m not going to CameronDirect but I will be at the conference to hear what he has to say there. Looking in to liveblogging from that, but I’m not sure I’ve got the technology / knowhow!

  • If they ever send out the details, I might be there too.

    Mick,

    Just a slight correction, I’m blogging it remote, technology permitting!

  • Mick Fealty

    I think they’ve got the wifi organised Chekov. Cover it live makes it easier to do, so long as you break it down into bits.

  • And the email has landed in my inbox. Now to negotiate an early pass out to scoot up the road.

  • Mark McGregor

    I’ll be there. If anyone wants to say hello drop me a mail.

    Mick,

    Explain as if you are talking to a small child how to twitter – I have an account.

  • Mick Fealty

    Just try it. If you Twitter anything to do with Cameron Direct then add #CamDir and it will appear in this search:

    http://search.twitter.com/search?q=#CamDir

    Which will in turn filter into this Widget:

  • Mark McGregor

    What number do i send the message to?

  • Mick Fealty

    You have to find people to ‘follow’. Use the search facility to find mine or go to http://www.twitter.com/MickFealty and follow me. I’ll follow you back. Then just write you’re tweets and they’ll go out to whomever is following you. Or following the tag you use.

  • Mark McGregor

    I’m following you now.

    It seems you can update via SMS. You register your phone then text the message to +44 7624 801423 with the appropriate tag.

    I’ll try it later – I gave up the mobile phone after years of being the slave to one and will need to use my wife’s when she gets back.

    I want to know what size of turkey he would recommend?

    …oh, it’s for a family of four.
