Simon Willison’s Weblog


Another MP Blogger

16th June 2003

Fantastic! Tom Watson has now been joined by Richard Allan (Liberal Democrat MP for Sheffield Hallam) in the ranks of MPs with their own weblog. It looks like it’s going to be really good; Richard is something of a geek (he runs RedHat 8.0 at home) and in one of his first entries he takes advantage of his position as an MP to extract information from Tiscali about broadband pricing issues in the UK.

Update: Further reading reveals that he is the Liberal Democrat spokesman on information technology, and a member of a number of technology related government groups.
