The Evening Standard says Waugh’s blog is about “politicians, power struggles and Westminster shenanigans”, which neatly sums it up. The paper’s deputy political editor is non-aligned. He roves far and wide inside the corridors, committee rooms and bars of Westminster, and his posts fizz with energy and mischief. On a running story he is hard to keep up with. A great exponent of political bloggery at its best, his site is often irreverent and always fast off the blocks. On the serious stuff he marshals the facts, but with the gossip just gets it out.
