Top of the Blogs: the Golden Dozen #2

The second of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories as listed on the Aggregator, together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

So, here we go, in order of popularity:

1. ‘Ming: “Put up or shut up”’ from Jonathan Calder’s Liberal England blog.
A two-word put down from Lord Bonkers’ confidante.
2. ‘Lib Dems spinning out of control’, again from Jonathan Calder’s Liberal England blog.
Whose fault was the misleading post-match analysis of Ming Campbell’s spring conference speech?
3. ‘61 and stunning!’ from Duncan Borrowman’s eponymous blog.
Proving a picture really can be worth a thousand words.
4. ‘Good page for Ming in the Times’ from Paul Walters’ Liberal Burblings blog.
Linking to the article which started all the post-election coalition chatter.
5. ‘BBC Injunction – Exclusive!’ from the Liberal Review blog.
Just why was Auntie forced to pull its story on the cash-for-honours investigation?
6. ‘I’ve officially given up on the BBC’ from Joe Taylor’s Liberty Online blog.
Not a big fan of the Beeb’s coverage of the Lib Dem spring conference.
7. ‘Counting the cash’ from (ahem) Stephen Tall’s A Liberal Goes A Long Way blog.
Detailing the increase in Lib Dem donations in the last six years.

And another five well worth a read:

8. ‘Credible politicians’ on James Graham’s ‘Quaequam Blog!’ blog.
What is the job of a good MP?
9. ‘”The line is busy”’ on James Oates’ Cicero’s Songs blog.
Fulminating against Labour’s addiction to legislation: “more rules, more bans, less freedom”.
10. ‘Trident Speech’ on Colin Ross’s website.
The speech Colin would have made at the Lib Dems’ spring conference if he’d been called.
11. ‘The Gaffer’ on Peter Black’s eponymous blog.
Welsh First Minister Rhodri Morgan cracks an inappropriate (and very old) joke about Ian Paisley in front of Tony Blair and Peter Hain.
12. ‘A conference virgin’s outline of day one – Lib Dem Spring conference 2007’ on Alex Kemp’s blog.
On first impressions, Nick Clegg and becoming a Minger.

There you have it, then. Next week’s Golden Dozen will be back in its intended Sunday slot.
