Top five Merseyside MPs' websites
It's not surprising, as I mentioned in a previous blog the Labour party uses social network site Twitter as a broadcast facility instead of one to engage with people.
I'm not surprised in the least by the findings of the Hansard Society survey.
It spurred me on to have a look at the websites of Merseyside MPs. To be frank many were pretty unimpressive.
And the following MPs didn't even have their own website with a dedicated URL: Bob Wareing (Ind, West Derby), Joe Benton (Lab, Bootle), Eddie O'Hara (Lab, Knowsley South), Dave Watts (Lab, St Helens North).
I have complied a top five website of Merseyside MPs:
Frank Field (Lab, Birkenhead)
The Labour rebel has recently re-launched his website and set up a Twitter account. He is probably Merseyside's most web savvy MP, and despite the fact his website is not perfect he gets 10/10
Shaun Woodward (Lab, St Helens South)
The Northern Ireland Secretary has an extremely professional looking website full of useful information. He lets it down though by not keeping his blog up-to-date, the last post was at the end of September. 7/10
John Pugh (Lib, Southport)
His website may be slightly too busy, but overall it's a very good package. 7//10
Ben Chapman (Lab, Wirral South)
His site is very user friendly, complete with a Google map to chart his activity in the constituency and monthly reports. 6/10
Angela Eagle (Lab, Wallasey)
The treasury minister's site has a clean professional look, but could offer a lot more. 5/10
