BBC launches new political website
"Just when politicians thought that they might get some time away from the public gaze, as the electorate grows weary of MPs' expenses, a new watchdog has been born. The BBC today launches a new online service, Democracy Live, which will enable the public to follow political debates more closely than ever before in the months leading up to the general election.
"The site is believed to have cost just over £1m to launch and has been funded from the BBC's existing online budget. Eleven permanent members of staff will run the service.
"Drawing on the success of political sites such as TheyWorkForYou, Democracy Live will provide a one-stop shop of political videos, with eight video streams to watch - including proceedings from Westminster and Strasbourg, as well as debates taking place in Holyrood, Cardiff and Stormont."
