Taste of the search engines for Milburn

So what do ex-government ministers in the UK do during the Silly Season, in order to pass the time?

Donning his “community business” hat this week, Milburn was on hand to help launch Travelsearcher, a free-form text search tool, created by local company Geo-Net.

The other chap in the photograph is managing director Peter Bulloch, and it was taken at Geo-Net’s offices, not a villa in Tuscany or Cliff Richard's Caribbean home - popular destinations amongst New Labour politicians.
