Politics and government in the age of the internet Let’s start with some statistics and comparisons. Think back to October 1994 when the Labour Party put its conference proceedings on the web, leading the party to claim it was the rst UK political party with an internet presence. Now, ten years on, the online political landscape has changed dramatically. In 2005 it is inconceivable that a political party would not have an internet site; in fact, one of Britain’s newest political parties (the People’s Alliance) actually launched itself online (Happold, 2003). Similarly, MPs with web sites were a rarity ten years ago, so much so that no ofcial statistics exist. Even in 2000, Ward reported that only around 16 per cent of MPs were on the net (Ward, 2000). Today, the results are vastly different. Epolitix.com hosts web sites for MPs and also links to those who choose to host their site elsewhere; currently around 63 per cent (416 out of 659) of Westminster MPs have a personal web site.
