Speaking of technology...

In between votes today (we were on a running whip) I popped into the British Computer Society's MPs Websites Awards 2008 in the Strangers Dining Room.

The overall winner of the Best MP's Website award was Derek Wyatt MP. Awards were also given for Best Design, to John Hutton MP, Best Accessibility, which went to Alan Johnson MP for the second year running, and Best Engagement. Modesty prevents me from revealing the winner of that one.

The real winner of the night was Andy Hudson, who designs not only Derek's website, (which also won Best Engagement last year) but also Jim Murphy's (which got a Highly Commended) and mine. Unfortunately his services are now being requested by many more MPs - including several who had the good sense to employ my former interns - so the battle for 2009 will be a tough one!
