    A good point…but I doubt most will continue blogging after they lose their seats. It would be interesting to see if there is a relationship between their use of ‘mp’ and their majority.

    From experience, I think you will find that MPs will either take down their website or, as in most cases (including with at least one you mention above), they will transfer to a blog that doesn’t have the “MP” title in it and keep the other one in stasis for after the election.

    There are usually plenty of briefings about what you can and can’t do as an incumbent MP during an election set up by Parliament before the election is called.

    Also to be taken into consideration is whether any funding for the site comes from the communication allowance or other Parliamentary funding.
