Today sees the launch of the new conservatives.com and, on first impressions, it looks really good.
Highlights other than the design makeover:
- The party’s new blog, The Blue Blog;
- A video wall.
- A very clear summary of policy, Where We Stand.
- A guide to campaigns.
- Regionalised sections; eg South West England.
We are told it’s a work in progress. More features will be rolled out over coming weeks.
It’s not the radical platform we would like to see but it’s a big leap forward and keeps the party well ahead of our political opponents. Most encouraging is the fact that a team of six people are now dedicated to new media within CCHQ. That should make the whole exercise sustainable. Warmest congratulations to the folks behind this relaunch.
