Margaret Thatcher’s death – what Lib Dems bloggers have been saying

However expected it might have been, the reality of Margaret Thatcher’s death triggered many of us to reflect yesterday. She shaped the country and, by doing so, she shaped all of us. That’s reflected in the number of Lib Dem bloggers who responded to her passing yesterday…

RIP Margaret Thatcher… and now for the pointless vitriol… (Mark Valladares)

… it’s been many years since she was Prime Minister, and a lot of the actions taken by her Government have stood the test of time. You might not like them much, especially if you were on the wrong end of them, but

LDV Weekend Meme: your favourite blog-posts

The Lib Dem blog awards are with us again – and one of the categories is ‘Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog (since 1st September 2008)’. This is actually my favourite award for the simple reason that it recognises writing talent, pure and simple. By which I don’t mean that the prose has to be worthy of a Booker nomination; rather that the article has to attract, engage and provoke readers – elevate our thinking, if you like.

I’ve got a few ideas of what I intend to write, but I’d greatly appreciate the insistence of Lib Dem Voice readers – as well as Lib Dem bloggers – to ensure my analysis is suitably rounded and informed. I’ve come up with five questions I …

LibDemBlogs.co.uk needs your help to keep running

Users of the excellent Lib Dem Blogs aggregator will have noticed it stopped working earlier today and no longer displays new posts from registered Lib Dem bloggers. This is because it has outgrown its current server arrangements and the site’s owner, Ryan Cullen, needs help from the Lib Dem blogosphere to cover the costs of moving.

If you value your visits to www.libdemblogs.co.uk, then please consider throwing in a donation to cover Ryan’s costs. His labour on the site has been a great resource for readers and authors of Lib Dem blogs. It would be a tragedy to …
