A collaborative blog for Current Affairs and Policy Debate

House of Comments

This week I appear as a guest on the House of Comments podcast, along with Lib Dem PPC for Islington and South Finsbury Bridget Fox, and founder and editor of Tory Radio Jonathan Sheppard.

The House of Comments is a weekly independent political podcast presented by bloggers Mark Thompson, of the Liberal Democrat aligned Mark Reckons, and Stuart Sharpe, of the non-politicaly aligned Sharpe’s Opinion. The show invites political bloggers each week to discuss a few of the stories that are making waves in the blogosphere. We discussed the Digitial Economy Bill* and amendments which many Lib Dems including Bridget are seeking to change, which led to a wider discussion about copyright; hung parliaments (which inevitably led to electoral reform); and Royal Mail’s pay rise, and the future of the Universal Fare Service.

You can access the episode from the website, or you can download the raw mp3 file here. You can also subscribe to the podcast via iTunes.

My thanks to Mark Thompson and Stuart Sharpe for inviting me on the podcast, and to all involved for an enjoyable evening’s discussion. My apologies for what were doubtless numerous times I unintentionally cut across someone, as I am quite new to this, and haven’t recorded a group coversation of this kind before.

 *Note: In the spirit of  fairness, I should point out that my previous blog post on Digital Britain was written after this podcast, rather than before. I knew very little about this debate prior to it.
