March Post of the Month

My Post of the Month for March 2011 is John Hemming MP: abuse of power, and privilege, written by Carl Gardner on his Head of Legal blog.

I don't propose to say anything here about the merits of the arguments Carl sets out in the post, or even the subject of the post. Instead, what I like about the post is that it contains much of the best of serious blogging: an important issue expertly analysed, followed by a lively discussion in the comments section, in which Carl fully participates.

Blogging is often dismissed as being 'lightweight' or inconsequential, usually by those who rarely if ever read a blog. Obviously, this can be true for many blogs, but the image of the whole genre sometimes seems to be tarnished by such misapprehensions. Hopefully, posts like Carl's will help to redress the balance, and show that good blogging really can make a difference.
