Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #63

With Mr Tall t’internet less and Mr Foster off in Greece, it’s my turn to complete this weeks Golden Dozen.

It’s the 63rd of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (27th April – 3rd May), together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

Let’s get straight down to it, in descending order of popularity:

1. Peter Black: Tory compares Boris to Mussolini

2. Jo Anglezarke: Bumper mayoral blog round-up, she does it so I don’t have too.

3. Jennie Rigg: For Pity’s Sake, London Lib Dems!!!

4. Alex Wilcock: The Curse of Shapps Hits the BBC, before the BBC counted to 4 and corrected the article.

5. Jonny Wright: Paddick has flipped his lid, maybe he just used VoteMatch to make his mind up?

6. Linda Jack: The Candidate Trap………Crewe and Nantwich

7. Linda again with: Are we getting slaughtered on the GLA? – answer yes 🙁

Our my hand-picked quintet this week are:

8. Alix Mortimer live blogging the elections whilst appearing on the TV: BBC Elections 2008 live blog

9. Jennie (again) with: Blog a Free Book, your chance to get a free Penguin Classic if you are quick enough.

10. Alex Folkes: Talk Talk raises the online voting myth

11. Chris Richards: on migration on the problem with all those foreigners not only voting but running in the local elections.

12. and finally James Graham with his wonderful Cheezburger pic: …would the last person to leave London please turn out the lights

  • Anyone who wants to know what the Same Old Tories are like beneath Camoron’s liberal facade should go to the thread on ToryHome about whether Boris will be a green mayor. We really do need to show that site to floating voters. They’ll run miles from the Same Old Tories.
