The Labour Party now has a podcast (kudos to http://www.bloggers4labour.org for the tip). I haven't listened to it, but it just seems to be ministerial QandAs and speeches ATM. Perhaps Party HQ should get a prominent Labour celebrity (John O'Farrell anyone?) to do a weekly round of news and Tory-bashing. Don't forget the Tory bashing. Stick in some Liberal-bashing while you're at it. Maybe some competitions as well. We'll have to see.
I didn't get on the MAD Council, because it wasn't first come first served. I might challenge for a seat if a councillor does particularly little.
I'm still contributing to the Merit though, with a weekly article on NS news for InterMet. If you have any NS news, comment here.
