Despite the fact that a statement on the site claimed that it was being revamped, the Whiteleas and Parkway Community blog has been de-listed by their hosts Blogger. This means that the Councillors who ran it (Gibson and Brady) have either moved elsewhere, changed the name or finally decided that it was too much hassle. As the site gained a lot of “attention” near its final days, I favour hassle road.
Regardless of the issues, the more people who post on regional and Borough issues, the better. Their disappearance is a therefore sad, especially for those in their ward. No other Councillor in this Borough uses the media of the web to inform their Ward what they do on a daily basis etc, to represent them.
Mind you, with Council Leader Paul Waggott’s attitude to emails and the public, it’s probably just as well.
