From the TUC

blogging the PBR

24 Nov 2008, by in Blogging

This is our first live blogging event. We plan to do it like this.

TUC policy experts will all be sitting in the General Secretary’s office watching the television coverage, and discussing what’s said.

I will distill that into pithy comments while the Chancellor is speaking, and add them to a rolling post.

(Of course anything that looks particularly perceptive in the cold light of tomorrow will be all my own work. Anything that doesn’t look that good will be items where I have only acted as the scribe.)

Once the Chancellor has sat down we will get out a quick press reaction as soon as we can, which we will also post here.

Individual policy experts will then go through the detail and post analysis or anything interesting that we discover here, and we may well do a more detailed media response too.

Let us know what you think, and send us links to anything you’re blogging that we should know about.

    I know that this is a very important day in Parliament and that the Opposition have to oppose but when the Opposition suddenly uproar it makes it impossible to hear what the Chancellor is saying, can’t Mr. Speaker shut them up when it happens (Ah, he has just told Michael Fabricant (Con, Lichfield) to shut up!)
