Three thoughts on online engagement…

I’d give the SDLP good marks for online engagement. Sunder at the Fabians’ blog likes the Maginness is good for EU blog… I kinda like the logo too (it’s fun)… But, what’s with the Beyonce competition that started erupting all over Facebook last night (or was it the night before)… I’ve no doubt she’s a ‘lovely girl’, but hey, what on earth has that got to do with politics lads/lasses? And lastly, Chekov is going to be Twittering Cameron Direct from the Braid Centre in Ballymena… But guess what? No Wifi! That’ll be one of them there obstacles to communicating on the net. Picamp, etc… Come on Ballymena…
