One of the fabulous things about covering politics for a month is that you get to hook up people you know but have never actually seen in the flesh. I met my third blogger on Tuesday – Dave Bones – he was at the same Robin Cook meeting. We went for a pint and chat afterwards, talked about UK Politics, Blair, Howard, Galloway, and the future of Independent Media. I had my old fashioned audio cassette recorder with me and grabbed 10 minutes.

What an intelligent and switched on guy he turned out to be. I was really taken with his attitude – when the Iraq war started, he got online and befriended Republicans. Now you can’t say that a lot of lefties would do that.

He’s a lot less yellow in real life.

Listen to the audio here (8MB).
