Blast from the past

We should register the arrival of Mims Davies as Parliamentary Under-Secretary at the DCMS, responsible for gambling, horse racing, Office for Civil Society, sport, the National Lottery and society lotteries, and cross-government work on loneliness.

As we've mentioned before, her cv apparently includes "media and communications work for the AA, BBC and police".  The BBC gig seems to have been work experience organised under a sub-set of BBC Online called BBC Blast, a network for creative teenagers and young adults.

Mim's task was travelling to festivals and music events from her home in Stroud, making content for the wesbite of BBC Radio Goucestershire, around August and September 2008.

On 24 January 2011, the BBC announced the closure of BBC Blast as part of a 25% cut to the BBC Online budget.
