The new Total Politics website – published by Iain Dale – has launched,. It looks like it contains some pretty good stuff, not least a political speeches database. I’m aware it’s early days – but was a little disappointed by some aspects of the political blog directory, a great idea but hampered – at the moment – by the lack of a search engine for that material (although the directory is fairly well categorised). I was also a little disappointed by the Scottish political blog directory. I’m not sure where this has been sourced from, but while it contains some of my regular reads (the Scottish ROund Up, Mr Eugenides, Brian Taylor, the curiously misspelled (on Total Politics) Freedom and Whisky, ASWAS, and others) it is missing a number of the excellent Scottish political blogs, not least the consistently good J ARthur MacNumpty, Doctor Vee, the Justified Spinner, Kezia Dugdale, and the unfortunately maligned Tom Harris MP.
ETA I forgot one other excellent Scottish political blog and remedy the omission – SNP Tactical voting.
