Our Christmas video: Political bloggers say goodbye

The past twelve months (and prior) have seen several very popular blogs either shut down or change editorial hands. As the year draws to a close, what better opportunity to reflect on those bloggers “no longer with us”. Starring Iain Dale, Tom Harris, Derek Draper and others, we’ve finally completed our end-of-year video.

This is our tribute to those who have bought their site a one-way ticket to Zurich.

    Katherine Jenkins would of been a better choice, but good video.

    There’s also a few that have gone so quiet that they may as well have packed it in, e.g. People’s Republic of Mortimer, Wife In The North, Mark Reckons.

    Even David Lindsay seems less inclined to outlandish announcements of new political movements.

    Love it, especially the ‘except donal blaney’ at the end. Genius
