Video: Vince Cable MP talks to Lib Dem bloggers about… blogging

Vince Cable agreed to be interviewed by a group of Lib Dem bloggers last night at Parliament.

My camcorder and I were there for Lib Dem Voice – and joined by Alix Mortimer, Andy Hinton, Jennie Rigg, Jo Christie-Smith, Mark Valladares, Mary Reid and Millennium Dome, Elephant. Look out for their write-ups too.

I asked Vince for his thoughts on blogging, and why he doesn’t have a blog of his own.

Vince cited “time” as the main obstacle, and later in the conversation underlined his commitment to keeping in touch with his constituents. The assembled bloggers pointed out that all these things go well together, so Vince agreed to think about it.

I have a very open mind – I say Lynne [Featherstone] has been a very good advocate for this, and I have agreed with her that this is a deficiency of mine… If somebody could help me get a push off the ground…”

We also pointed out to Vince that he’s welcome to contribute to Lib Dem Voice, and so are all the rest of you!
