Would it be wrong of me to stop supporting David Cameron not because of his policies (which I largely agree with), but because of his terrible website. Which can be summed up in a list of two points:
- Every single ‘web 2.0′ tutorial written by a 13 year old with no clue has been puked up all over the layout
- David Cameron hired someone with no previous experience in web design to design a web site for him
Now, with the budgets of the elections I expect so much better than this from (what I hope is) my future prime minister.
I have to say it’s brilliant that Mr Cameron is taking the steps of a blogging online and podcasting. But with a design like that (and coding like that, I must add), it may as well not be online in it’s current state.
If part of the aim is to appeal to younger voters (like myself) via the internet – then the way to go about it isn’t to publish the site using a layout that looks like that. Apart from the raw content and views expressed on the website I really can’t see how the older generation would like this website either.
