New kids on the block: Lib Dem blogs you may have missed

Perhaps spurred on by the party’s leadership contest, there has been a flowering of new Liberal Democrat blogs over the last couple of months along with several former bloggers starting up once more.

In no particular order, here are the five new or renewed blogs from the last two months that have most caught my eye:

Jo Anglezarke: already a veteran of The Voice’s Golden Dozen round-ups, Jo’s blog ranges more widely across politics than many Liberal Democrat blogs – reaching beyond the confines of the latest Liberal Democrat news to frequently talk about policy and rarely penning a boring sentence.

Peter Dunphy: a smattering of inside information, a plethora of pugnacious posts, a very black background and what do you have? Peter’s blog – including the fascinating list of what’s happened to those who used to be in the youth and student wings of the SDP. It seems like everyone except Pink Dog was once a member.

Christine Gilmore: who can resist a blog that talks about customer service in Belgium? I can’t.

Simon Goldie: an ex-blogger returns to blogging. His recent posts have included not just party politics, but also the impact of Starbucks and the decline in emailing by teenagers. I’m not sure how I’d describe his overall choice of topics, other than to say I always find them interesting.

Neil Stockley: only three posts so far, but with his background in New Zealand politics and as a former Lib Dem head of policy, this is one blog to watch – if it takes off, it should be very good.

(One or two of these bloggers – shockingly 🙂 – aren’t making use of the party’s campaign buttons. Go on, you know you want to add them…)
