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

1. My on a hiding to nothing General Election prediction by Richard Morris on A view from Ham Common.
An interesting bit of number crunching.

2. Election 2017: Actually this is good for all parties by Stephen Tall on Stephen Tall.
Even for Labour? Apparently so.

3. Top 20 Liberal Democrat targets on 8 June by Jonathan Calder on Liberal England.
Could we see the likes of Julian Huppert, Ed Davey, Vince Cable and Kelly-Marie Blundell in Parliament? Let’s hope so.

4.  A lot of Labour voters in the north, Midlands and Wales won’t vote Tory. They’ll do this instead by Nick Tyrone on NickTyrone.com.
Not such a happy prediction.

5. It’s dawned on the Tories that they may have made a terrible mistake by Richard Harris on A View from Ham Commono.
Either that or they are realising that a massive poll lead doesn’t lend itself to their Corbyn/Sturgeon scare stories..

And now to the seven blog-posts that come highly recommended, regardless of the number of Aggregator click-throughs they attracted.

6. Why has May called a general election now? by Jennie Rigg on THAT’s not what you said in the Jeffries Tube.
May have more to do with the CPS and the 2015 election than Brexit.

7. Another vote, another disappointment? by Alex Wilcock on Love and Liberty.
For one T May, of 10 Downing Street.

8. “That would be an ecumenical matter”  by Zoe O’Connell  on Complicity.
Another post on Farron and sin.

9. New Twitter muting policy by Jennie Rigg on THAT’s not what you said in the Jeffries Tube. And as a bonus, here’s her list of who to follow during the Election.
Some very good Twitter advice.

10. Three things I’d do if I were Tim Farron today by Nick Barlow on What you can get away with.
He’s done two of them already.

11. Out of the darkness into the light  by Mark Valladares on Liberal Democracy
Election musings from holiday in the Baltics

12. Every vote will make me stronger by Alex Marsh on Alex’s Archives.
How the Liberal Democrats need a strong articulation of social liberalism to make progress in the General Election

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