There is a chance that David Miliband might write a Foreign Office blog once he has settled into his new post as Foreign Secretary. It has not been ruled out, according to Ross Ferguson, Director of the Hansard Society’s eDemocracy programme, who I met yesterday.
There is no reason why it cannot be done with sensitivity and regard to confidentiality, while at the same time facilitating an open and public debate on foreign affairs.
It will provide an interactive platform to discuss Iraq and Iran, Israel and Africa, as well as our relationship with Washington, and so much more.
Still speculation, albeit now with some credibility if not authority.
