this is a splendid example and a splendid contribution. The picture of Mr Salter is credited to the website martinsalter.com, which does not exist. It emerges that his web presence is now different, although it still shows copyright "Martin Salter MP", is still produced by Public Impact Limited (prop. J. Howarth, remember "Your Better Off With Labour"?) and has plenty of pictures of the Reading East constituency. Bizarre. It is not realistically possible in today's world to be politically active, or active in any other way, without any kind of cyber-presence. And Mr Salter has chosen, rather late, to go into politics in Australia. He has even been published in the Sydney Morning Herald. A pity that in the fishing mag piece he refers to a hung parliament, when there is no such thing in Australia and when the piece itself was published after it became clear that there was to be a Labor government. Oh well, never mind, could do better - but if you want to go to work, Mr S, in Australia or anywhere else, if the delights of unemployment have now palled, you had better learn to use this newfangled cyberweb thingy. Oh and has nobody told you that sending out handwritten press releases a week in advance is likely to make you look, when events (and the fact that Julia Gillard initially had no majority should have been a clue here) were moving quite fast, a bit silly. And we don't hear from you about Mr Blunkett's remarks in the Daily Filth about your erstwhile constituency! What's that you say? They don't sell the Guardian in the kiosks of Darling Harbour? http://www.guardian.co.uk/ Blunkett, go on, you can do it if you Really Try, there's a brave little soldier, we won't let the nasty horrid interweb thingy get you. Well, we might if we get bored.
Seriously, does anyone else think it odd that a former MP who lives on the other side of the world should be seeking a publicity presence in Reading, to the extent that serving councillors and hired thugs there have been ordered to link to his musings in Australia?
