Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #292

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 292th 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 (16-22 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 “might just have struck gold” by Jonathan Calder on Liberal England.

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. Policing The Land – in honour of #LDConf by on .

9. One big rule if you’re writing about politics by Andrew Hickey on Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!.
