    Quite. I was slightly more polite about Milliband in my post and comment on the subject.

    It's an interesting idea - and one I want to take further in the near future - but the latter point also raises the issue of whether a 'transparent' medium can mask a non-transparent 'message'. Politics in particular raises this isse. A good example is the great PR for MI6 who launched a website to be seen as more transparent. But there's very little in the way of actual useful or new information on the site. Still it looks good..... and this then is perhaps a mis-use of 'transparent media' by PROs?
