The most interesting post this morning is the news or rather claims that Lib Dem Voice blog will close to new contributions and comments on June 19th. Bit sad really, LDV is on my must daily read list. If it really happens and I mean if, there won't be anybody to have a go at me any more. Rob Fenwick's famous for his slagging off, snide remarks and fabricated posts. He's so spiteful and such a miserable moo. Even today's post has the comments .

This coming from a man who thinks calling the Lib Dems “LibbyDems” is cutting edge wit, and who hasn’t noticed that the constant prattle he posts to this site hasn’t been published for the last month.
Iain Dale in his usual magnanimous style - Lessons from the Demise of LibDem Voice. In truth Iain has some valid points. When not having a go at people, the blog does serve a useful service. Somebody at HQ has been leaking info to him so he's always on the ball with facts about the LibDems.
Though being realistic Iain Dale sums it up articulately with the words,
So I suppose the lesson from this is that it's not easy to make a blog work for a mass, participatory audience, unless you have the resources to devote huge amounts of time and effort to getting it off the ground in the first place and then maintaining it.
Call me sceptical but I don't believe the blog will really close down. Somebody else will be the front man with Rob in the background pulling all the strings. It's all a sympathy ploy. Rob Fenwick is far too egocentric. Bet we'll see a last minute reprieve with all the 'adulation' and 'slapping on the back' comments which he so likes.
Update 31st May: As I predicted - And on the third day, Lib Dem Voice rose from the dead…
