Derek Draper hosts Labour blogging breakfast

Back in September I reported that Labour's Derek Draper was exploring plans for an online rapid rebuttal unit to kill off damaging stories circulating in the blogosphere.

Now, according to Guido Fawkes, he has raised his ambitions:

Tomorrow morning Derek Draper is convening a "New Media Breakfast" meeting with dozens of Labour bloggers and New Media types to hear from Blue State Digital how Labour can use the internet to win the next election. Blue State Digital are the people that did Obama's online stuff - rather well.
Guido also claims to have the list of attenders. Among them is Sunny Hundal - the moving spirit of Liberal Conspiracy and one of the judges of this year's Lib Dem blog awards.

Well, they've not invited me, or Bill Jones (Skipper), or Paul Burgin (Mars Hill) or Mike Ion or Bob Piper - perhaps because we're all over 30 and live outside London.

And Sunny's relationship with the Labour party is an interesting one, to say the least...

Thanks, Jennie. Hundal it is.
