They're All At It Now

The Times joins the Guardian and the BBC in starting up an election blog. I expect the Morning Star are still putting the finishing touches to theirs.

Thought George Galloway might have started one up here, but alas, it is not to be.

Dead-Tree-Press online, weird, The Times call their offering a 'log'. This blog explosion is boring, with everybody canniballistically quoting each other. Still Guido is intrigued to find out who won the Guardian Backbencher's Political weblog awards - polling closed on Monday. You would have thought they might mention it on their shiny new election blog. Wouldn't you?

Particularly as Recess Monkey was the only contestant left after the other nominees jointly withdrew on April Fools Day after the Backbencher told everyone to cheat.

Still Tom Happold reckons its his party and he'll award whomever he wants to. Should be interesting.

Update: anorak-ish Woy Jenkins disciples Make Votes Count now also have a blog. It's remarkably sparky for such a dry subject matter (hat-tip: that metablog)

More: Look, I hate to break it to you, but this isn't a blog. Try harder.

Even More: We already mentioned Red Pepper's own 'spicy' election blog, but here it is again for the sake of comprehensive-ness.
