Start a blog!

IT’S now time to start a blog. No seriously, start a blog. Councillors in England’s Somerton Town Council have resigned after a blogger called them names and criticised their work.

The council will now have to stage elections.

Just ponder that for a moment…a blogger using his right to free speech and waffle on the interweb has caused the collapse of a council.

A motion was passed describing ‘impossible working conditions’ and several of the burghers of Somerton resigned.

Could a blog be used to collapse a council in Northern Ireland? Could it even be used to tumble Stormont? That would be possible if our elected representatives weren’t so thick skinned. Few of them could ever be described as the sensitive type.
