Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #39

Welcome to the 39th of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (10th – 17th November), together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

Go on, guess which story’s dominated the last seven days’ blogs?

1. Just how low will Huhne’s supporters go ? on Nich Starling’s Norfolk Blogger blog.
What’s the word? ‘Trenchant’ is probably best.

2. The Messiah has arrived! on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.
The posting which provoked Nich’s ire – the Bristol hustings are brought to life here, though not everyone agrees with Paul’s assessment.

3. Clegg on school vouchers – the evidence on Jo Hayes’ blog.
The disputed evidence, at least: a comments thread well worth reading through.

4. The public’s comments on last night’s Question Time on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.
Read Paul’s posting by all means; I wouldn’t suggest trawling through the BBC messageboards, though. Ever.

5. Is Chris Huhne trying to smear Nick Clegg? on Jeremy Hargreaves’ blog.
And this was posted before the Politics Show debate raised the temperature still further…

6. Gender Balance and Euro Selections – setting some facts straight on James Graham’s Quaequam Blog! blog.
What’s that word again? Ah, yes: ‘trenchant’.

7. Chris Huhne: time to get serious on James Graham’s Quaequam Blog! blog.
The latest acute and acerbic instalment of James’s endorsement-tease.

And here’s another five well worth reading (if you haven’t already):

8. European Selection: a massacre of the innocents on Mark Valladares’ Liberal Bureaucracy blog.
A returning officer writes from a personal perspective.

9. Cleggheads and Huhnistas: what are they like? on Alix Mortimer’s The People’s Republic of Mortimer blog.
A rather balanced take on the latest eruptions, though some might balk at the binary labelling.

11. Nick Clegg: the five books that have most influenced my politicial views and Chris Huhne: the five books that have most influenced my politicial views on Lib Dem Voice.
Two postings from our leadership candidates: I liked reading about what they like reading.

12. Those blog comments we all love to read on Anders Hanson’s blog.
One of the (too few) amusing postings to have come out of the leadership contest so far.

And that’s it for another week (ish). Happy blogging…

* Stephen Tall is beginning to enjoy the freedom of leadership neutrality.
