Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #315

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 315th 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 (24 February – 2 March, 2013), 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. Responding to Rennard by Linda Jack on Lindylooz Muze .
Linda wants the party great and good to care more about the “poor bloody infantry.”

2. The press puts the boot in to the Lib Dems and we all know why by Cicero on Cicero’s Songs .
And we are right to ask whether this proves that statutory regulation of the press is needed.

3. Groping in the Dark by Cicero on Cicero’s Songs.
“No one cares about the real issues, they just want to renact scenes from “The Thick of it”.

4. What I heard on the ground in Eastleigh by Maelo Manning on Libdemchild aged 13.
Maelo’s experiences of canvassing found people with faith in the Liberal Democrats.

5. No spinning Rennard allegations, it’s time for the truth by Charlotte Henry on Digital Politico .
“So let’s stop the spin and get to the bottom of this properly and quickly, and make sure that the Liberal Democrats become a political party that women can work and succeed in.”

6. The Lib Dems Battle of Stalingrad by Jonathan Wallace on Jonathan Wallace .
Eastleigh could be the start of the road to a successful General Election in 2015, says Jonathan

7.  A Conservative press officer reacts to Maria Hutchings by Jonathan Calder on Liberal England.
A photo ripe for a caption competition if ever there was one.

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. Allegations of Harassment  by Rachel on Rachel Coleman Finch.
The effect on an organisation of not dealing with allegations of harassment properly.

9. Osborne becomes more and more like Brown by Mark Thompson on Mark Thompson’s Blog.
“Mark has a good point.” (Submitted by Louise Shaw via LibDig.)

10. Getting your priorities right  by Dave Page on Jazz Hands, Serious Business.
Introducing the concept of Lib Dem/life balance. (Submitted by Dave via LibDig.)

11. Eastleigh – proof there’s no such thing as a perfect storm. by Alex Wilcock on Love and Liberty .
Five lessons, two questions and two fingers.

12. Rennard scandal proves a change of culture is needed by Andrew Page on A Scottish Liberal.
“A thoughtful piece on the Rennard allegations by Andrew.” (Submitted by Andrew Brown via LibDig.)

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