The Iain Dale comeback tour
After giving up his top-ranking blog for a job as a local radio talk-show host, Iain Dale has been conspicuous by his absence from the list of those used by the serious national media for soundbites and instant opinions. Dale's blog was hugely influential; without his constant promotion of a few favourite co-blogs they have now dropped like stones in the rankings. It is, I suspect, these favourites that he is now recruiting for a new 'group blog'. With it perhaps will return his status as the 'father of the political blogosphere' and the early morning phone calls from the 'Today' production team. Perhaps.
