Looking back at Britain's first party political websites

PoliticalWire looks back at British political parties' first attempts to use the net to communicate with supporters and voters:

Not knowing how to leverage this new medium, the big political parties put little thought, or effort into their brand new websites. And as a result they ended up with stale and underutilized communications channels at best, and at worst a collection of badly designed, sorry looking pages.
The graphic above shows the Liberal Democrat website from 1996.
