it's oh so quiet

Red Alert used to be worth reading.  Since the election it has been as dull as dishwater.  I suspect this is due to a combination of:

  • the Labour MPs that made it to parliament being unsure of how and whether to use Red Alert in the post-election environment, and
  • Christmas.

Red Alert could be an excellent tool for discussion between Labour MPs and the public, if it were used properly.  If it doesn't improve in the next fortnight I may be forced to email Mr Mallard and suggest it is renamed Dead Alert until they get their act together.

  1. Two further problems, Labour lost some very good MPs in the election and the leadership battle has affected the participants and supporters in various ways. It does need a bit of a restart though.

  2. Fair enough micky, I'm still getting used to this blogging lark and this was meant to be slightly-humourous. I guess I need more practice, and maybe to learn how to use those tag things.
    Red Alert could work very well for Labour, if only they used it more effectively. There are a number of reasons why it might have quietened off, it needs to roar back into life.
