Brockley Central assimilated by the Guardian

The Guardian has begun to aggregate stories from selected London blogs, ahead of this year's elections. Brockley Central is the first blog to succumb to the Guardian website's technological superiority.

The aim is to create a London blogging gestalt, which makes the Guardian the first port of call for London coverage and drives traffic out towards the individual sites.

We've written a few times about the contribution hyperlocal blogs can make towards local news coverage and political debate, so it's an honour to be the first blog included in the Guardian's experiment, even if our primacy is the result of nothing more than Brockley's place in the alphabet.

The Guardan's London blogger, Dave Hill, has written about the project here. Brockley Central will be doing its best to cover the Lewisham elections, especially now the Guardian has raised the stakes.
