The internet is responsible for eliciting a new wave of decision making with all the credits to the emergence of new tools for communication. Or in other simpler words, the emergence of ‘weblogs’. Ever since this term was coined, they have attained a proper definition and have evolved almost at a blistering pace. They have come to cover almost every aspect of our lives. Needless to say, Internet and especially the creation of blogs and its usage plays an integral part in the political arena. The weblog has been quick to bedazzle the crowd and influence them almost every time. There is something about this concept of being able to express yourself freely and lent strident opinions on political affairs without causing any substantial harm to your own self.
Involvement of the UK
For the longest time, the world has idolized a constitutional system similar to that of the British or, more specifically, Great Britain. Many major UK sites have shifted from rumor-mongering to a full political base blog that acts as a forum for many natives to voice out their opinions and views on the latest political proceedings. This is, as aforementioned, an integral part of decision making. People have even considered setting up their own personal blogs that reflect their political ideologies. It is more of a feeling of liberation than just feeling like a part of a group in decision making. Posts can be made instantly when you have enough material and it only takes a few minutes to compile and post. There are several other advantages, as this concept breaks the barriers of getting a job and putting a name on your opinions. Bloggers can demonstrate other bloggers views and either agree or disagree in a totally nonviolent manner. Political blogging is often referred to as ‘pub rant’ and the opinionated nature of participation in this field has gained popularity in the UK. Blogs have a very different meaning in Britain and are perceived in a lot of ways which is why most of the British political bloggers are divided by their own importance and not just their political ideology.
While there are several personal blogs and websites available for the general reader and user to read, these are more or less run by individuals who don’t have an unbiased opinion most of the time. Every Individual present will have a different opinion and a different mindset while going into a particular topic or a specific sector of politics. He might be upset with the current state, or he might just go full our praising the current situations. There are a very few numbers of websites which allow the user to gain an unbiased knowledge-based upon facts and restricted knowledge. Finding such blogs or websites, hence, becomes very hard and over a period of time is almost impossible. In circumstances like these, it is left completely on the reader to identify and evaluate the situation based on all the available data, facts, and statements to correctly formulate their own opinion while also assessing all factors.
