As a contributing editor of Total Politics magazine, I warmly welcome its new blog, but I couldn't help but be amused to see that it's been named after one of my old Newcastle Journal columns, Party Lines.
The column was a light-hearted, midweek counterpoint to my more serious "Saturday column" which still continues today.
It was actually the second column of that name to appear under my byline, the first having appeared in Derbyshire Now! magazine from 1992-94.
Sadly it was before the days of teh interwebs so no link but I still have the dog-eared cuttings in my attic somewhere...
