And now to the five blog-posts that come highly recommended, regardless of the number of Aggregator click-throughs they attracted. These are normally chosen using the LibDig bookmarking website for party members, the site where you can highlight blog-posts you want to share with your fellow Lib Dems. Remember, though, you’re still more than welcome to nominate for the Golden Dozen a Lib Dem blog article published in the past seven days – your own, or someone else’s – using the steam-powered method of e-mail … all you have to do is drop a line to [email protected]

8. This is why we are in Government by Caron Lindsay on Caron’s Musings.

11. People who do not understand our constitution should not pontificate on it. WARNING: contains rant on Jennie Rigg’s blog.

12. Dentist reviews HIV guidance – and health trust is giving training too by Michael Carchrie Campbell on Gyronny Herald.
“A story of educating health professions (Dentists on this occasion) about treating HIV patients with equality without ignorance. Some very Lib Dem thoughts brought about by a simple enquiry from Michael.” (Submitted by Stephen Glenn via LibDig.)
