The Guardian launch Dave Hill's new London Blog

The Guardian have had the best London coverage out of all the National newspapers for some time now and that looks to be stepping up with the launch of Dave Hill's new London Blog.

Dave has been blogging over at London: Mayor and More since the start of the year, and has become the first stop for most journalists and bloggers following London politics.

He's winding that one up now, but fortunately it looks like he will be carrying on where he left off at his new home.

So if you're a regular reader or if you haven't come across Dave yet, then it's time to redirect your browsers to his new full time blog at the Guardian website.

It's only been going a half a day and he's already updated it more times than all of the Evening Standard 'bloggers' have put together.

Yes I don't know what's happened to Pippa Crerar's blog. I used to quite enjoy reading that one but she seems to have given it up.

When I see a pile of Guardian newspapers, I rush pass, crossing myself and averting my eyes, but Dave is fair and worth reading.

What are you scared of exactly?

Many Guardian readers support the present government, with its shameful record over the past 10 years.

This is anathema to me.

The Guardian don't do my politics, but they do London politics and have a history of being the best place to get stories about London government aired. They have usually been happy to print my comments, alongside others which might not agree, and they are a prime news source for the BBC, so I have sometimes found TV and radio interest on the back of their work. Good on them for actually taking an interest.

At one time to get stories into some other national newspapers you had to think up links to fox hunting, Europe or the House of Lords...

To be honest, I do buy the Guardian, not all the time, but quite often. To get a balanced view, you have to buy other views, then make up your mind. The cultural articles are good, Dave Hill is good and they are funny on popular culture.

The paper was a bit vile to Boris during the election, and that was the only time I really genuflected.
