Another sign of the developing political blog scene in the UK – Tom Watson, Labour MP for West Bromwich, has adapted his web presence and set up a snazzy-looking weblog.

Contrary to the Guardian’s Matthew Tempest, Tom isn’t the first MP to blog though, that honour appears to go to Lib Dem Edward Davey, who blogs on his local issues.

And talking of comrade Tempest, he has adjusted slightly his verdict on this blog. Having labelled me a right-wing libertarian he now says: “For Mr Steele, while ostensibly of the Left, seems to be more akin to David Aaronovitch’s liberal SDP-ism, or even Rod Liddle’s more right-wing libertarianism.Fairly straight, if a little lacking in character.

So welcome to the first SDP-ist blog in the world!
