The admirable Kezia wrote a post suggesting that Nicola had been thrown out of a shopping centre and that the BBC had filmed it and refused to broadcast it. So far, so who cares?
Then Nicola e-mailed Kezia (according to Kezia) demanding the removal of the post, a request which - naturally enough - was refused.
I have no idea who is in the right here. But I draw some lessons:
1. Bloggers are playing a part in this by-election. For the first time in Scotland?
2. Politicians engage with bloggers at their peril. What might have been a minor contretemps has been given weight and prominence by Nicola's reaction.
3. Bullying bloggers is not really a good idea.
4. The BBC has been awfully quiet about the incident.
More tomorrow, no doubt.
