He has been promoted to Environment Secretary as he announced in a post to his blog early this afternoon. And he hopes to continue blogging:
As you may know I’m no longer Minister of Communities and Local Government – I’m now Environment Secretary – so this blog will no longer exist at its current URL.
But I’m very much hoping this won’t be the end of my presence on the blogosphere…please keep an eye out.
Thanks to everyone who’s been reading the blog and posting comments – I’m looking forward to continuing our conversations.
With his blog, Miliband represents a new wave of influential politicians who clearly understand social media and the role they can play in direct communication, so I certainly hope he is able to continue.
Keeping an eye out.
