This nice-looking Conservative blog from an ex-Labour voter takes a look at the politics news of the day.
The very Tory theme running throughout the site is somewhat surprising given the author voted Labour in the last three elections, but given the look of the site we're in no doubt as to where his allegiances lie now.
The posts are updated regularly and there's a great deal of opportunity for interaction.
Whichever end of the political spectrum you come from this site is worth a visit, if only to appreciate how all blogs should work.
