Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #26

What has the blogosphere been reading this week? As usual, the Golden Dozen is your much-loved round-up of the seven best click-throughs from the Lib Dem Blogs aggregator (13th-19th August) with a specially-selected quintent you might have otherwise have missed.

Without further ado, here were this seven top clicks:

1. Cowley Street’s Wikipedia habits EXPOSED! (in a moment of boredom. not much here.) on Rob Fenwick’s Posh-sonding Northumbrian blog
He feared it wasn’t that exciting, but such was the public desire to know the secret lives of Will “Brucey” Howells, Mark “Google” Pack and Duncan “Duncan” Borrowman that you flocked in your droves.

2. MEP newsletter arrives! on Duncan Borrowman’s blog
As pleased as he is to hear of Lib Dem MEPs’ successes, Duncan asks questions over the advantage gained by an incumbent putting out a report in the midst of the Euro candidates’ selection campaign.

3. Norman Lamb’s Fake Facebook profile: an update by Mark Pack on Lib Dem Voice
1,2,3,4… who do fakes fear most of all?

4. Banning Things Is Insane, Except When Not Banning Them Is Insane – BBC on Alex Wilcock’s Love and Liberty blog
With characteristic completeness, Alex lays a hatchet into the Today programme (and other things).

=5. Brown tells Labour – get all PPCs in place by conference on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog
Election fever’s in the air!

=5. Third party leader arrives by hovercraft to address voters on busy seaside beach on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings

=5. New Statesman Talks Up Ming Assassins by (ahem) Richard Huzzey on Lib Dem Voice
“Who holds a social event on an eve-of-poll? I hope they at least wrote some envelopes at the event.”

And here are five I enjoyed reading and hope you will too:

8. Scottish Lib Dems Don’t Need Perfidious Albion Butting In on James Graham’s Quaequam blog
James points to the Scottish Lib Dems’ USP of federalism, and why they’re right to oppose an independence vote.

9. 20 Years a Liberal – A Walk Down Memory Lane on Toby Philpott’s Liberal Legend II blog
A reminiscence, in two parts. Nostalgia for oldies and a history lesson for the rest of us.

10. An Elephant’s Voice by the Millennium Elephant on Lib Dem Voice
Everything you ever wanted to know about politics but were afraid to ask an elephant.

11. Guardian Shatters Dreams on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog
If you think you won the lottery this week, don’t write out the seven figure check to your local party yet.

12. Bureaucrat in love: Now the story can be told… on Mark Valladare’s Liberal Bureaucracy blog
Mark announces his engagement. Let the red tape confetti fly!

And so ends another week of our Golden Dozen. Join us next time for 12 more blog posts to fill your Sunday.

* Richard Huzzey is about to return to British soil. But he is still not Stephen Tall.
