My dozen best bits of 2012

Here is my personal list of the best bits in Lib Dem Voice in 2012. Please add your suggestions in the comments.

In no particular order:

Lynne Featherstone’s honeycomb surprise (Caron Lindsay) – any post about icecream will always catch my attention

Opinion: Mental health provision in the NHS – share your experiences (Tim Purkiss) – only last week, Tim’s brave post was a catalyst for some very moving comments

Introducing… Lib Dems Against Factionalism (Adam Bell) – love it

Opinion: A storm in a jam jar – my top 5 Euromyths (Giles Goodall) – jam, balloons and liquefied corpses

Tim Farron MP writes… The ASA and me – a response (Tim Farron) – Tim got himself into hot water but apologised, setting a precedent that at least one other senior Lib Dem will follow

Lynne Featherstone MP writes… George Galloway’s comments on rape are totally unacceptable, and they have an effect (Lynne Featherstone) – spot on

+++ EXCLUSIVE: Government to bring 2013 local elections forward to last Thursday in February (Mark Pack) – my suggestion for an April Fool magnificently realised by Mark Pack. And at least one person fell for it.

The Independent View: If I were in your shoes…views from the other side of the Coalition (Tim Montgomerie) – possibly helpful advice from a Tory

The 5 myths about the UK economy which it suits everyone to perpetuate (Stephen Tall) – with graphs. This was also the most read post in 2012.

Comeback Clegg – the Times’ reasons to be cheerful about the Lib Dems (Helen Duffett) – because we all need cheering up

In praise of Councillor Neil Hughes – 56 Up (Paul Walter) – great to see one of the original ‘7 up’ seven year olds has overcome personal challenges in his life to become an effective Lib Dem councillor

James Bond escorts The Queen to the London 2012 Olympic Games – BBC (Mary Reid) – and why not? It recalls our charmed summer
