So on a local level, what do we have in Leicester? Err, well, there's Leicestertwesta, "making Leicester unrubbish since 2009", but that's not really political. However, there are some signs of political life stirring in virtual Lesta. Councillor Ross Grant has started blogging and is using his Twitter account. I ask you to leave party politics aside and welcome Ross into the bosom of your social networks, in the hope that where he has led, others will follow.
I'm not aware of any other Leicester Councillors using social media, but you may do. If you do, I'd suggested adding them to Leicestertwesta rather than here. And if you want more local info, there's the Leicester City Council news feeds, and Leicestershire Constabulary Carnival of Fun (personally, I'm a big fan of Suspects ;-)
Update: No longer a Twittersceptic
