Where is Gordon Brown’s Website?

So with all the upheaval going on, the laying out of a new vision (and this would be which version of the vision?) I thought I’d have a look at Gordon Brown’s website to find out what he actually thought. Except, ehrm, I’m struggling to find one.

The obvious address of www.gordonbrown.co.uk opens up with “this is an unofficial site run independently and has no connections with any political party.” Going dot com doesn’t help either, as www.gordonbrown.com leads to a re-direct towards a Blogger based site posting up the occasional barbed attack on the man. The final format used by many MP’s is to suffix the name. Okay then… www.gordonbrownmp.co.uk is a good start, as it’s not attacking him, but it’s also popping up a 403 error – I’m not allowed to access the content.

I’m assuming that something was resident at gordonbrownmp.co.uk as the Wikipedia article for his Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency points to it as his constituency website.

Final role of the dice – a general Google search on his name. Which points me to the Number Ten Downing Street, a wikipedia biography, and three estate agents trading under the name Gordon Brown. And of course the blogosphere discovered the delights of http://www.gordonbrownforbritain.com/ earlier this spring.

If Brown wants to have a national conversation, if he wants to listen to the country, then he could at least make it a little bit easier. Thankfully I am no longer his constituent, but I must ask my Mum and Dad (who still live in Cowdenbeath) how well advertised his surgeries are…

For fairness, I hit other party leaders to see where their first offical page was:
First Google result for David Cameronhttp://www.davidcameronmp.com/ (Official Site)
First Google result for Nick Clegghttp://www.nickclegg.org.uk/ (Official Site)
Third result for Alex Salmondhttp://members.snp.org/people/alex (Offical, but 502 error report)
First result for Wendy Alexanderhttp://www.wendyalexander.co.uk/ (Offical site)

Poor show for the SNP leader there – I wonder if Wendy Alexander can use this web fangled nonsense as a new line of attack on the SNP leader… which will naturally embarrass her London chiefs in the process?
