    Event: New media stuff, and when I go up against Dan Hannan

    by Sunny on 3rd July, 2009 at 12:00 am    

    I hope Daniel Hannan MEP can tell the difference between Sunder Katwala and I this time, as I’ll be debating him next week.

    The world of the media is changing as fast as everything else. A politician makes a speech ignored by the conventional media and it gets 1 million hits on utube. The world of Blogs forces a resignation of a chief government adviser before the daily newspapers know what is going on! The new social media is challenging the conventional news elites as never before.

    Politicians and their established lobbies are running scared. The new social media has blown a hole through the existing elites. What does this mean for the future? Speakers include:
    Daniel Hannan MEP
    Carol Haslam - producer
    Professor Barrie Axford is the author of the book “New Media and Politics”
    Sunny Hundal (some blogger)

    More about the event on this page. It looks pretty full but I think they still have a few spaces left (free).

      What do you expect from a Tory? Anyone not white is all the same to them.

      We should, however, be asking why it is bottom-feeders like Paul Staines who break the big stories - and why Iain Dale is the only blogger anyone outside of politics is likely to have heard of. Yes, those bloggers have no lives outside of the Westminster bubble or outside politics at all, but it is a bit annoying that they seem to get all the credit for whatever happens online. Iain “leading blogger” Dale my arse.

      If Iain is the leading blogger, why wasn’t he invited?

      Are you calling Dan Hannan a racist? I actually like Dan Hannan. He is pretty sensible plus the guy has some balls, going after Brown at the EU parliament the way he did.

      He is pretty sensible

      Apart from the fact that he made most of his Youtube rant up.

      “between Sunder Katwala and I”?? “between Sunder Katwala and me”. This pronoun is governed by the preposition “between” and therefore takes the oblique case and not the nominative.

      I am away next week - very annoying, as I would have loved to go.

      Still you won’t be debating “against” him, will you?
      About which aspects of the topic are you likely to be disagreeing strongly?

      Enjoy it anyway.

      I didn’t even know who he was, happily. Have you noticed his resemblance to Prince Andrew? It would be all too easy to confuse the two…

      Jesus, really?! Who is Dan Hannan?
