The Mumsnet election

 

mumsnet election in the mediaFollowing our Gordon Brown webchat (and the ensuing Biscuitgate palaver), political commentators began furiously dissecting the role Mumsnet will play in the forthcoming general election.

Rachel Sylvester in The Times wrote: "Just as Worcester Woman was the symbolic swing voter in 1997, and "soccer moms" were Bill Clinton's target during the 1996 US presidential campaign, so next year's poll will be the Mumsnet election." She quoted Deborah Mattinson, Mr Brown's pollster, who said: "Mumsnet is totemic of the modern mothers who will be the key political battleground at the next election."

Webchats with David Cameron and Nick Clegg upped the ante even further, so we kept a little tally of the press coverage about mumsnet, its members and the 2010 general election.
