Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #291

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 291st weekly round-up from the Lib Dem blogosphere … Featuring the seven most popular stories beyond Lib Dem Voice according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (9-15 September, 2012), together with a hand-picked quintet, normally courtesy of LibDig, you might otherwise have missed.

As ever, let’s start with the most popular post, and work our way down:

1. Nick Clegg conceded too much to the opponents of Lords Reform  by Jonathan Calder on Liberal England .
An economic crisis is a political one too. Whose words were these 3 years ago?

Vince’s sofa interplay with Ed Balls also features

3. Viv Bingham memorial service, NLC, 12 September 2012 by Iain Brodie-Brown on Birkdale Focus.

4. Linda Jack: Police and Crime Commissioner?  by Alan D Winter on Alan D Winter.

5. This headline is in today’s Telegraph, but should be in the Daily Mail or Private Eye by Richard Morris on A View from Ham Common.

7. Sod’s Law by Mike Booth on Kew Focus.
Something he’s well qualified to make a contribution on….and can he get to the Council Chamber?

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. Lib Dem MP gives agent solid silver cup as thank you by Iain Brodie Brown on Birkdale Focus .
