Webcameron

Via Prodicus, I see that Spam has decided to embrace, in a form, this whole blogging thing, via Webcameron. I've watched the two most recent clips and I have to say that Spam comes across quite well, although he could do away with the slightly scary Blairesque hand movements, frankly.

Is it too obviously calculating to film the pieces in his home, with his wife and kids running about? Actually, if he wanted to achieve the idea that he is a loving family man, etc. then he does rather well. It doesn't really seem forced and he comes across as quite genuine. Spam is even saying sensible things and that I didn't expect.

Still, at least he's embracing the medium. After a fashion...

On the hand waving thing, have you seen this Time Trumpet thing?

It sort of puts the whole thing into exact perspectives, right?

Cameron's only job outside politics (and, so far, inside politics) has been in PR: if he can't set up a blog which comes over all warm and friendly then nobody can. He's still Blair Mk 2 - light on policy, light on the causes of policy.

I seem to remember Blair did a kitchen table thing. I am not sure if it was before or after he was made leader.

On a more serious note, he's made his family part of the process and thus fair game for the dirt diggers.

I wouldn't know if there is any familial dirt to dig, but this has opened the season.

Perhaps not the wisest of moves - we shall see.
