I've left this comment on one of their posts, but I don't want to lose track of it, so I'll reproduce it here:
So Labourist is all in favour of free and open debate and transparency and deplores the opacity of Labour List?
OK. I buy that. Now who - exactly - developed this website? The thing is, people do things for a reason. Building a site like this takes a bit of time and energy, and a bit of resource. It’s definitely a clever idea. Just saying you are ‘nobody’ is - patently - a lie.
Who are you- exactly? What have you written elsewhere? What other blogs are you involved in? Do any of you belong to a political party?
This initiative definitely won’t be welcomed by The Labour Party, and as ‘libertarian crusaders’ I suspect that you will not be surprised by this. Libertarian crusaders are rarely impressed by the way that political parties try to ‘control the message.’ So are there any examples of ‘libertarian crusades’ that you are conducting against any of the other political parties? Or or you just tories really? In my experience, most ‘libertarians’ - like Lord Hailsham moaning about an ‘elective dictatorship’ during the Wilson government before joining the most centralising cabinet the UK has ever seen in the 1980s - are just Tories.
Their ‘libertarianism’ evaporates as soon as the ‘natural party of government’ is restored. So, come on - out with it! Are you Tories really? And are you going to harass the other political parties with the same vigour?
Have you been encouraged to develop this site by anyone? Have you been provided with either financial resources, access to technical advice or facilities by anyone? You say… “we have been described as ‘online libertarian crusaders’.” By whom? When and where? And why? What other examples of libertarian crusading have you been involved in?
More importantly, why don’t you enable comments on your FAQ page? We should be told.
