Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #293

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 293rd 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 (22-28 September, 2012), together with a hand-picked quintet, normally courtesy of LibDig, you might otherwise have missed.

Don’t forget: you can sign up to receive the Golden Dozen direct to your email inbox — just click here — ensuring you never miss out on the best of Lib Dem blogging.

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

1. When friends fall out, aka Reeves gets a rollocking off Nick by Richard Morris on A View from Ham Common.
The Sun suggests Nick Clegg is less than happy over his former Strategy Adviser’s public comments

2. Read my lips: Party good, leader/coalition not so good by Paul Walter on Liberal Burblings
Paul still loves the party, even if he sometimes disagrees with the leadership.

3. Civil war in Labour?  by Richard Morris on A View from Ham Common.
Richard finds evidence of potential splits as Labour gather in Manchester.

4. Devastating new Obama Ad by Charlotte Henry on Digital Politico

7. The best and worst bits of Conference by George Potter on The Potter Blogger.
George’s highs and lows of the week in Brighton.

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 Leadership – the runners and riders. With added Star Trek metaphor by Jennie Rigg on Jennie Rigg.
Nick Clegg is safe as leader, says Jennie. Do you agree with her Enterprise crew?

9. Why do men think it’s ok for men to get their Nuts out in public?  by Caron Lindsay on Caron’s Musings .
An uncomfortable experience on a plane prompts Caron to ask what is appropriate for the public space.

10. Dead parrots strike back by Cicero on Cicero’s Songs.
Rumours of the death of the Liberal Democrats are way off the mark, says Cicero.

11. Liberal Democrats are back on course with employee ownership – with updated comments  by Iain Brodie Brown on Birkdale Focus. Iain examines something that’s not exactly a new idea for Liberals.

12. Conference Notes 2 by Andrew Brown on The Widow’s World.
Andrew went to his first Conference and this is what he thought.

And that’s it for another week. Happy blogging ‘n’ reading ‘n’ nominating.
