Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #23

Welcome to the 23rd of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (22nd-28th July), together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

Here we go, in descending order of popularity:

1. Another Lib Dem councillor defects in Oxford on Lib Dem Voice.
Well, speaking personally, I’d rather this hadn’t been the week’s top posting.

2. Quaequam Ealing Southall on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.
It doesn’t seem quite fair somehow that this post gained second place, but James Graham’s article didn’t feature in the Golden Dozen last week: so here it is.

3. The elephant speaks on Ed Maxfield’s blog.
Trumpeting the popping of Mr Balloon’s popularity.

4. I’m starting a “Lib Dems for Cameron” campaign on Nich Starling’s Norfolk Blogger blog.
Have the wheels really come off Dave’s bicycle?

5. Opinion: Three cheers for ‘bomb proof’ Lib Dems by Paul Walter on Lib Dem Voice.
An optimistic end-of-term report from the Lib Dem burbler-in-chief.

6. I’m back! on Arwen Folkes’ blog.
Commiserations to Arwen on her runner’s up spot; and congratulations to Terrye Teverson on becoming Lib Dem PPC for Truro and Falmouth.

7. What do the Tories base their predictions on? on Jonathan Wallace’s blog.
Equal measures of credulity, ignorance and arrogance, perchance?

And, for a summer treat, the five ‘personal choice’ articles this week are all from recent additions to the Lib Dem blog-roll of honour:

8. The Magisterium Committee on Don Liberali’s The Liberal Mafia blog.
A look at the London mayoral contest in this Capo’s inimitable style.

9. Not so tiny footprints on Duncan Hames’ blog.
An alternative way to reduce your carbon footprint.

10. Dull on agentmancuso’s blog.
Ah, where would we be without the enlightening comments made on newspaper websites?

11. Localism on Christopher Leslie’s Liberal Leslie blog.
“The Liberal program for reform should not just be more local government, but clearer and smaller to.”

12. Ming comes out on top on Carl Qulliam’s Letters From Letterman blog.
Two-thirds of site visitors voted for Ming to carry on leading.

And that’s it for another week… or thereabouts.
