Top of the Blogs: the Golden Dozen #43 (Leadership special)

Welcome to the 43rd of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (9th-15th December), together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

The final full week of the leadership contest… Here are the top-rated stories in descending order:

1. A Vote For Chris (featuring Chris’ answer to a nasty question you’ve probably seen elsewhere) on Alex Wilcock’s Love and Liberty blog.
Can you guess which way Alex actually voted from his two companion pieces (see below, 3)?

2. Ming’s Lists on Pete Dunphy’s Party Political PLC blog.
An inside track on the leader’s advisors? You decide…

3. A Vote For Nick (featuring Nick’s ‘EXCLUSIVE’ answer to a nasty question) on Alex Wilcock’s Love and Liberty blog.
2,857 words for Chris, 2,643 words for Nick – a wafer-thin majority for Huhne.

4. Cowley St Xmas Party – exclusive photos!
on Jonathan Wallace’s blog.
You guys! You just love your Hello-style photo spreads, don’t you…

5. Vince Cable skips Federal Executive meeting to film Strictly Come Dancing on Meral Ece’s blog.
A tough choice, I’m sure. (Daddy or chips?)

6. I’m a voter, not a supporter on Andy Strange’s Process Guy blog.
Best marked down as a Prob rather than a Def.

7. New MORI poll, featuring leadership question on Lib Dem Voice.
10% have their wish.

To celebrate our new leader’s election, this week’s personal selection are The Elephant Interviews with Nick Clegg as compiled by Millennium Elephant himself. For those who’ve not heard of The Elephant Interviews, but are intrigued, read this. And then read these:

8. Day 2514: The Leadership Interview… Nick Clegg meets Millennium (and some other people) on Millennium Dome, Elephant’s Very Fluffy Diary blog.

9. (come to think of it, actually, a bit) EXCLUSIVE: Nick Clegg talks to Quaequam Blog! (finished at last) on James Graham’s Quaequam Blog! blog.

10. Clever Cleggs on Mary Reid’s blog.

11. Pride, Shame, Nick Clegg and the Bloggers’ Breakfast
and I will say this only………3 MILLION TIMES……..I don’t support School Vouchers! on Linda Jack’s Lindyloo’s Muze blog.

12. Nick Clegg up close and Nick Clegg – potentially a great leader of our party on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.

And that’s it for another week or so. Happy blogging!
